President’s Message 2019-2020
WOW, first of all I would like to thank all HGC members for your exceptional support during the past 2 years. And I’m asking for your continued support during the upcoming 2 years. Without your help, none of us can succeed.
Let’s look at what we accomplished this past year. Our membership remains steady at about 75 and participation is increasing. Our Bylaws were updated (thank you David and Co.). The Youth Gardeners program started (thank you Sharon and Co.). Thank you Jolyne for fun and effective fundraising. Jen distributed 20 Veteran’s baskets. The Kings Highway urns look stunning (thank you Bobbie and Co.). We hosted the Joint Meeting, the Installation of Officers, and monthly hospitality (thank you MaryClare, Debbie and Christine). We offered interesting and educational programs and a trip to the 9/11 Memorial (thank you Jeanette). The Flowers in the Library continue to receive kudos from residents (thank you Jolyne and Chris). The Herb Sale was fantastic because of the Herculean efforts of Lorrie and Co. And a big thank you to Glenna, Executive Board minutes taker, photographer, and state award winner, treasurer Marian, and Betsy for her continued support and help.
The Blue Star Memorial is progressing under the capable guidance of Jen and we are hoping for dedication on Memorial Day 2020. VP Sheila organized our programs, our financial records were reviewed, and the 2019-20 Budget will be presented at our September meeting. My tiara is polished; I’m ready for another successful year and hope you are too.
Sharon Winge, President HGC
