SUMMER PLAY DATE DETAILS
Summer is when members of the VLGS meet for a day to share the gourd glow. Examples of past play date activities have included playing with new ideas, taking field trips to gourd farms or galleries, and generally beating the heat with their favorite inedible member of the squash family -- gourds! Always the last Saturday in July, VLGS members bring a friend, a show-and-tell item and story, and a lunch and beverages.
This year, we meet in Madison Heights, Virginia on July 30. Madison Heights is 15 minutes northwest of Lynchburg, VA. The Play Date will be held at Oak Lawn, a beautiful property and house (circa 1850) that has been placed on the Virginia Landmarks Registry and the National Register of Historic Places. We start at 9am and have a blast with gourds and companionship until 4pm. The project will be announced soon!
