The Chester Lioness Club plans to meet for dinner on Thur., Nov. 3, at 6:30 p.m. in the Lamplighter Restaurant in Chester. There will be a demonstration of flower arranging for the upcoming holidays by Mary Ellen Allcock owner operator of Chester Floral and Design in Chester.
Allcock opened Chester Floral and Design on June 4, 2014. She grew up in West Orange, married and moved to Randolph where her children attended school. The family later moved to Flanders where she began working for a local florist. Allcock “fell in love” with flowers and the joy they bring to her customers. Her enthusiasm for her work, and the empty flower shop on Main Street in Chester beckoned her to begin her own florist business. “When flowers arrive,” she says, “it seems all is right with the world.”
Community members are invited to attend this dinner meeting by reservation only. To learn more about the Chester Lioness Club and/or to register for this meeting, call Holly Simmenroth at 908-897-5932.
