Meetings and Programs

Our chapter's program year begins in September and ends in May of the following year. We do not meet in the summer months of June, July, and August.

Our usual meeting location is The New Hanover County Cooperative Extension Auditorium in Wilmington, North Carolina. The location address and map are below. 

This year, however, we might have additional meeting locations, if needed. We will keep you informed.

Typically, meetings are the third Thursday of the month, but on other dates determined by the availability of The Arboretum's auditorium, the days we have our annual exhibition, the days we have special workshops, and our final meeting in May.

Our gathering in May is hosted by a chapter member and always in a "coastal casual" location. The meeting closes our official year with an informal covered dish luncheon to celebrate our friendships through flowers and to install chapter officers for the following year.

Coming Events

All of the following activities, except the chapter's annual luncheon meeting, will usually be at The New Hanover County Cooperative Extension Auditorium. But, this year we might have to meet 
at different venues.  Should there be a change in venues, it will be posted on website and Facebook page.

We begin at 9:30 am with a half hour for hospitality; our meetings, programs, and workshops begin at 10:00 am.
