Become A Part of the Flower Guild
As we begin our eighth season at the Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts, we are so proud of our many accomplishments and what we continue to offer the citizens of Suffolk and the surrounding communities. In the past year alone, we have welcomed upwards of 50,000 visitors—including more than 12,000 young people and nearly 1,500 participating artists. Arts events at the Center are enriching the lives of our community—through theatrical, musical and dance performances, mind-expanding gallery exhibits, arts classes for all ages and a host of exciting field trips.
With so many eyes upon us, we invite you to help the Center show beautifully for our many guests by joining our Flower Guild. The extraordinary arrangements exhibited throughout the building during the year are just “the icing on the cake” for visitors to our Center. We are constantly complimented on the beauty and creativity of the arrangements the Guild provides. The added art of flowers truly makes our Center shine.
Our purpose is to beautify areas in the building with fresh flowers and in doing so provide an opportunity for you to meet and socialize with other members of the Guild. There will be no mandatory volunteer hours and each group of workers will be carefully selected to include experienced as well as novice arrangers.
We have many wonderful events planned at the Center this year and, of course, as a Guild member, you will receive a discounted ticket rate for any Guild event. We will also continue our tradition of “Decking the Halls” for the holiday season. This is always a fun morning and a good opportunity to get new decorating ideas and make new friends. As always, you participate only when it’s convenient for you, and groups will consist of arrangers of varying experience. In the spring we will host a special program for the beginner arranger as well as the experienced and will be followed by a delicious lunch. More information and tickets to this event will be available soon.
As a Member, the SCCA Foundation will invite you and a guest to a special reception followed by a SCCA performance in appreciation for your work at the Center.
We hope you will plan to join us this year as a member of our Guild and share in our many exciting activities. Annual dues are $25. If, however, you are also a member of the SCCA, you will enjoy a reduced rate of $20.
We hope you will join us so that we can include you in our exciting new season. The Guild is open to anyone interested, so tell a friend! We look forward to working with you this year.
