Dear Garden Club Members,
Welcome back from a summer that I hope was fun and relaxing with your family and friends.
The programs we have put together this year will allow us to venture into our gardens with birds and bugs, from plants that will attract and feed the birds to natural ways to deal with those creepy crawlers on those plants. I think you will find all of the programs interesting and educational. As we near the holiday season we will host our annual Christmas Tea. In January we will be visiting Mizell’s Camellia Hill Nursery as Mary Mizell readies for her annual open house. In the Spring we will, once again, host our annual luncheon/style show that enables us to continue the funding of our horticulture scholarship and other club activities. Our club members will also host our annual flower show which showcases floral designs and horticulture.
Community involvement is what our club is about and we will continue to support the Northshore Food Bank, maintain the Healing Garden and Triangle Park. This year we will also refurbish the Blue Star Marker Garden.
Remember ladies to invite and encourage your friends and family to attend one of our meetings so that we will continue to grow stronger.
I wish to thank you for the opportunity to be president of this wonderful club and to be a member of an amazing group of women. With that said let’s begin a year that will be “Cooking Up a Garden Gumbo”.
