Dear Members of the Wellington Garden Club:

 

I am very happy to start a new term serving as your President for the next two years along with a great Executive Committee. Welcome to a brand new garden club year. I am happy to say that most of our “old” members have renewed and we also have brand new members joining our club.  We will get acquainted with our new members at a New Member Reception on Thursday, October 22.  Our first garden club meeting of the year will be on Wednesday, September 9 at Village Park, 11700 Pierson Road in Wellington starting at 10:30 AM. Guests need to RSVP if they would like to attend a meeting by contacting us through our website email contact or our Membership Chair, Jim Wenham. We are so thankful that we have a nice facility to meet in while our new Community Center is under construction.

 

We listened to our members recommendations. We have some outstanding monthly program speakers and Around & About trips planned. Be sure to check out the Speakers and Around & Abouts in the new Schedule of Programs/Events on Pages 8-9.  You will see everything going on in our club, District X, FFGC and NGC there. Be sure to bring your Yearbook to each meeting for reference.

 

A very big and important event will be taking place next spring. We our preparing for our 2016 Garden Tour, “Glorious Gardens” on Saturday, April 9 from 10 Am to 4 PM.  The proceeds from this biennial garden tour are used to fund scholarships, youth garden club programs, camperships, Habitat for Humanity landscaping and several community beautification projects. Start telling your family and friends about this important and beautiful event. 

 

The incoming NGC President’s Special 2-Year Project is “Service in Action!” We want to encourage our Garden club members to serve by “increasing awareness and encouraging conservation of our amphibians, and our pollinator species” and by “finding and growing our future leaders”. Some of our speakers and Around & Abouts revolve around butterflies, amphibians, and bees. While we have lots of gardening, social and entertaining activities in our club, we also have volunteer opportunities you won’t want to miss!  Let’s not forget our youth. Nurture them and teach them the meaning of our motto:  “Gardening Makes a World of Difference”.  I have chosen: Nurture Our Gardens, Ourselves, and the Leaders of Tomorrow” as my theme for the next two years.
