First Robin of Spring Workshop!

(Energizing Your Garden Club Experience)

By Robin Pokorski

February 28, 2017

Walmart Auditorium in the Shewmaker Center on 

the Northwest Arkansas Community College Campus

9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.


At the Mid-Year Board Meeting in Searcy, many of us got to attend a presentation by Robin Pokorski, a dynamic speaker affiliated with the National Garden Club.  We came away almost vibrating with excitement about our Garden Clubs, because she shared so many wonderful ideas.  Now we are able to bring her to you!  The workshop will be held at Northwest Arkansas Community College – Walmart Auditorium.


Cost for the workshop will include the workshop, supplies and a nice lunch.  Cost is $25 if post-marked by February 15th, $30 after that date.
