At the conclusion of its 2019-20 season, the garden club announced its slate of officers for the coming season. Dianne Thompson Cain will serve as President; Karen Nuttall, Vice President; Jo Eisenhauer, Treasurer; Holli Bolte, Corresponding Secretary; and Gina Goad, Recording Secretary.
The club faces some of the same challenges in continuing its charter as do many organizations in the new environment we all share. It has recently completed a survey of the membership to assist in structuring, conducting, and moving the club forward. “With nearly 75% of the membership responding,” said President Dianne Thompson Cain, “we are proceeding with their input in making plans to conduct our club in the most careful, considerate, and safe way possible.” The club has several working committees comprised of enthusiastic members well on the way to designing activities targeted to members’ interests.
Current members will be notified with details for the first meeting of the season planned for Thursday, September 10. Additionally, an all-island invitational meeting for those interested in becoming new members will be held via Zoom on Friday, September 11 at 10:00 am. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for this meeting, and learn about club membership and many exciting events planned for the new season.
The club promotes among its members and the community an active, personal interest in
horticulture and artistic design, as well as community beautification, ecology, and philanthropy. Everyone is invited to join the blooming season ahead. Stay tuned, we are working hard and have great news coming soon!
