As summer turns into fall, I am preparing my second message to you the Haddonfield Garden Club members. The past year has been busy and enjoyable for me and I hope for you.
I am looking forward to continuing in this spirit. This year we are hosting the joint meeting with Moorestown and Pinelands Garden Clubs in November. A program on the 9/11 Memorial Trees will be presented by Paul Cowie. (I have seen this program and can personally say, “It is one of the very best I’ve ever seen”). MaryClare, Debbie and Chris will be handling hospitality and in true HGC spirit, we will all rise to the occasion.
Jeanette has prepared both educational and interesting programs for the year, including the return of the very popular, Bruce Crawford. We will make Holiday Wreaths, learn about Tea and Succulents, and visit the 9/11 Memorial in NYC in May. Our first meeting of the year will educate us on the Blue Star Memorial Program. All this, and the installation of your new 2019-2020 Officers at the home of member, Jennifer Fuller, in June. Who could ask for a better year? But, it will only happen if you contribute your own time and talent. So if asked, please answer, YES, I WILL HELP!
Thank you for your support, and happy gardening.
