The arrival of spring signals a new look for Mother Nature and is a time to discover new fashions for the upcoming spring and summer seasons.

To help fashionistas find that perfect new outfit the Dogwood Garden Club of Pollock Pines invites the public to enjoy a tea luncheon and fashion show on Thursday, May 24.

The annual Spring Fling Fundraiser, Spring Tea Luncheon will take place at the Smith Flat House, 2021 Smith Flat Road in Placerville, starting at noon.

“The fashion show is during our social time. The attire will be colorful spring and summer wear. The models will just walk around while the ladies have their wine or mimosas or whatever they are going to get,” Mary Bourne, club fundraising chair, said.

The event will feature fashions from Off Broadway, 1245 Broadway in Placerville, modeled by Judy Jackson, Doris Morley, Choral Engstrom, Annie Tornincasa and Cindy Medici.

After the parade of fashions a lunch of garden salad, tea sandwiches, shortbread cookies with lemon curd, fresh berries and tea will be enjoyed. There will be a no-host bar available.

A fashionable flair added to this year’s program is a spring hat contest with a $50 prize for the best  hat. The judge for the hat contest will be Medici.

In keeping with a garden club theme the grand prize in the raffle is an ultimate garden basket valued at $800. The basket includes gloves, hats, thermometer, hand-made bird nest guard, garden clogs, kneeling pad, bird feeder, garden art yard stake and an all-natural secrets to pest control book.

Another basket, valued at $760, includes: gift certificates to Pollock Pines businesses, including a one-month membership and two sessions with a trainer at Snap Fitness in Pollock Pines, a one-hour facial, pedicure and manicure and two bottles of wine.

For information on purchasing raffle tickets contact Sue Granno at 530-644-4261.

Tickets for the luncheon and fashion show are $25 per person.

To attend the event call Bourne at 530-644-4832 or Merle Neil at 530-644-0672.

Proceeds from the event go towards the beautification of Pollock Pines. The club also supports the establishment and continuance of the El Dorado County Library in Pollock Pines, local charities, schools, youth groups and service organizations.

    I bet this is important to the people here that have been laid off--or havent had a raise in 8 yrs. Over at our library--a huge poster of this event is on the inside of the door--there is no flyer for the other events in town--the town meeting on wed wasnt up (have pictures) and look who is listed Becky--Harper...you recognize Becky. At least they stopped posting they were responsible for establishing the library...part of the CEDAPP involved in mirror and shadows are listed....some are just caught up..heck write them all down--just so you know whos who in Pollock Power politics. They will tell you how they donate to Pollock --support Pollock...outside of the library this group has let everything the boy scouts did --fall apart. (have pics through out the last couple of months) I do not support Dogwood for the reason they support CEDAPP...now for the ones who actually gardens-and have for years...I honor you. Anyone hanging on to Harpers shirttails--shame on you for hiding information from the community and participating in the manipulation of some very good people. These people are real...they feel they can run the show better than anyone else. They are now going to other charities and asking for money for their group...come on --leave the churches alone. I was at a meeting where they even said they asked if they could sell raffle tickets at someone else s fund raiser ? A few of these people gave the $5,000 dollars of the communities money for the carpet in the library. El Dorado County Library supports Ms. Harper and the Dogwood club. Interesting. Whistles--nah--trumpets. BIG POSTER vs. almost nothing on other Pollock Pines events. where is the FOL? Your new community shadow box--which probably came from donations--is very selective...I would go out and at least pretend you care about the community here. Because now a few are on the Pollock Pines advisory board--I am waiting to see who the last four will be..that will be on this board that represents Harper--sorry the community. If you are hurt--because im a big "bully" too bad--because I have looked into the eyes of children whose families have lost their jobs. But keep planting those flowers.
