I am honored to be serving as your President for 2013-2015. If you take a look at my license plate on my car, it says "Back Again" and here I am! Needless to say, I look forward to working with all members of our club.
A very special thank you goes to those of you who willingly accepted a position on the Executive Board. We have a very busy year ahead of us with the Secret Gardens Tour and everything that is scheduled on our calendar for our members and community.
For my theme, I have selected, "Grow Where You are Planted." You all will have an opportunity to grow within whatever assignment you graciously accepted, whether it be as an officer, circle president, member of the executive committee or as a participating member of our club. It is my hope to see all of us grow, becoming even more joyful and stronger as a club during the next two years!
A little side note on my theme. My granddaughter in Alaska wrote a piece about growing for which she won an award at her school. Her theme was "Grow Where You Are Planted." With all her fifteen years of extensive travels, she had always adjusted to her surroundings.
Please feel free to contact me with your suggestions and concerns. We will all continue to work together to help our club prosper and grow. Hope you are having a great summer!
