NCGC’s involvement at Waveny Care Center is longstanding, starting when the center opened over 40 years ago. Championed and nurtured by pioneer flower volunteer and NCGC member Allison Caesar, the volunteer-based flower program now has greater participation than ever. Many local organizations in town and neighboring towns are involved and send volunteers at the beginning of each week to create beautiful floral designs who then return over the days to follow to change water, making sure all flowers remain fresh for the week. These arrangements adorn the dining rooms, reception areas, nursing stations and various common areas at Waveny.
The NCGC takes care of this effort during the month of January. Volunteers are always needed to support this commitment. It is a fun activity to do with one or more partners.
