A word about our 2017-2018 Program…

In the spirit of “Gardeners Just Wanna Have Fun,” the DGC Program committee has put together monthly activities designed for your enjoyment, entertainment and education with an emphasis on diverse activities (e.g., bus trips, hands-on workshops, great speakers), collaboration and community building. We want to engage new faces, build our membership and increase our partnerships with community groups such as the other garden clubs in District 1 and local non-profits, this with a view towards enhancing everyone’s experience in the Dorchester Garden Club. We encourage your input and ideas and guests are welcome at all our programs. 

To keep things ‘fun,’ our monthly program titles are song lyrics associated with that month’s activity in some way. The design categories featured at each of our mini flower shows are lyrics from the Cyndi Lauper song, “Girls Just Want to Have Fun,” the inspiration for our program year theme. Although, we are no longer all “girls,” we’re all gardeners who wanna have fun!

Girls Just Want To Have Fun
Composed by Robert Hozard, 
Sung by Cyndi Lauper whose version was released in 1983

I come home in the morning light (4/14 Program)
My mother says when you gonna live your life right
Oh mother dear we’re not the fortunate ones
And girls they want to have fun, oh girls just want to have fun.
The phone rings in the middle of the night (9/8 Program)
My father yells what you gonna do with your life
Oh daddy dear you know you’re still number one
But girls they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have, that’s all they really want--Some fun.
When the working day is done
Girls, they want to have fun
Oh girls just wanna have fun 
Some boys take a beautiful girl
And hide her away from the rest of the world (11/10 Program)
I want to be the one to walk in the sun
Oh girls they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have
That’s all they really want--Some fun. (2/9 Program)
When the working day is done
Girls, they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have fun (3/9 Program)
They want to have fun,
They want to have fun.
