Thanks to SIGC membership and guests for a great turnout at the February meeting featuring Karen Babb and her fascinating presentation on Feng Shui. It was witty, lively and thought provoking. This month we also want to continue with a shout out to the Seabrook Island Garden Club officers and Committee chairs, for their focus, creativity and hard work throughout the year. A special thank you to Lynne Madison and Dianne Thompson Cain, the ladies who have the hard job of coordinating the hospitality efforts at each meeting and ensuring that all are welcomed. Needless to say the wonderful treats are provided by our generous membership…in the words of Helen Keller, “Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.” Soon it will be time to elect new officers and chairs, won’t you consider filling in the blanks and sharing your talents as we move forward.
