Lord Craven chapter is again selling the North Carolina  wreaths that we sold last year.  It was a successful fund raiser for us and we hope that members will again support this effort and encourage friends and family to purchase one or more of these beautiful wreaths.  Shipping costs have increased and the price of the wreath this year is $22. The price is right and they make lovely gifts.  The wreaths will be delivered to Mary Earp by Dec 6 for pickup at her home.

The Lord Craven Chapter of Colonial Dames is selling  wreaths again this year. You can see from the photographs that Carole provided that you can decorate them in a variety of ways. You can just put a bow on one if you like or leave them plain.
