Victorian Tea 


Practicing social distancing during the current public health emergency is contrary to our traditional way of serving our community.  Z Club members are used to engaging with the community and serving others face to face through our community service programs.  But our highest priority is the safety and well-being of our members and our community and we are committed to help prevent the spread of coronavirus. Therefore, we will be following the recommendations made by Delaware Division of Public Health and Governor Carney's State of Emergency plan.


We have cancelled our March meeting and postponed the Victorian Tea.  It is doubtful that Z Club will be able to conduct normal activities during April and possibly May. We will have to take each week as it comes and make decisions based on the changing situation.  In the meantime please take special care of yourself and your family.


We will stay in touch by continuing to update our website. Keep washing your hands!

Due to delivery concerns, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our annual geranium sale.


We appreciate our supporters who last year purchased over 900 geraniums.  We will see you next year!

Applications are now being accepted for a $1,000 scholarship to be awarded to a Cape Henlopen High School 2020 graduating senior who will be continuing their education at a college or a vocational technical school.  Applications are due by May 1.
