One of the most anticipated social gatherings in Castle Pines is the Village Castle Pines Garden Club luncheon and fashion show, which was held on May 17 at The Country Club at Castle Pines. The event began at 10 a.m. with socializing and drinks, and the fashion show at 11 a.m., showcasing beautiful clothes from Parker Panache Boutique, all modeled by garden club members. The lunch began at noon with a choice of entrées: Artichoke and Parmesan stuffed chicken breast, tarragon and orange brined salmon, or marinated portobello mushrooms… all delicious!

With a current membership of more than 150, the club’s once-a-month educational programs and events offer members a wide range of subjects and opportunities to socialize and make new friends. You don’t even have to garden!

Founded in 1994, in addition to the two official gardens they maintain, the club’s Charity Outreach Committee also supports the Crisis Center and also the Help & Hope Center run by the Douglas/Elbert Task Force.
