Arranging for the Joy of It

Shrine Mont

Shrine Mont will offer its Eighth "Flower Retreat" this fall. Participants get to enjoy all the hospitality of Shrine Mont while learning about floral design, and then are set loose to practice what they’ve learned. It will be a weekend of relaxation and a fun atmosphere to work with flowers and experience nature in a beautiful setting.
