The Driftwood Garden Club of Marblehead welcomed both new members and familiar guests to our Annual Cocktail Party to kick off the 2021/2022 season. Held in the lovely gardens of our Vice President on a late September evening, the weather report predicted possible light showers. Ha!
And then the rain came. Umbrellas went up and food was quickly covered before the skies opened up. In between rain bursts, we were rewarded with a double rainbow and golden light in the gardens.
The rain did not dampen our spirits. Driftwood Garden Club members are resilient if not waterproof! We enjoyed the food, drink, and camaraderie under the canopy backlit by torches, and we look forward to the coming year working and learning together.
Founded in 1952, The Driftwood Garden Club will begin celebrating its 70th year as a community organization in 2022. To honor this milestone, the ‘Hugo spritz’ was served as our signature cocktail.
Driftwood Spritz Signature Cocktail
