President’s Message 2019-2020
A new exciting Garden Club year is here. I hope you all are well and ready to join me in a fun year of wonderful programs, field trips and projects all bound together with the friendships we share with each other.
Our fund raising projects start out with our Floral Arrangement auction at the Welcome Back Coffee and a Plant Sale in late October. Start making your cuttings to pot now. In January we look forward to our famous Card Party with all the fun raffles, silent auction, entertainment and yummy luncheon. Our Garden Fair Chairperson and crew have been working thru the summer setting up budgets, working on vendor and sponsor lists and are ready for another fabulous
Garden Fair at Protegrity Place, on February 29 and March 1.
These fundraising efforts provide scholarship monies for the University of Florida Horticulture students and Wekiva Camp sponsorships. The young adults and children who are aware these scholarships are coming from us are very appreciative and deserving. We also contribute to several environmental charities including the Sanford Zoo and Wekiva Trust.
Your hard work and contributions as members provide a wealth of learning and happiness to many people.
Thank you for your involvement. Here’s to cooler weather coming…eventually. May all the weeds in your garden turn out to be wildflowers!
