NEVADA GARDEN CLUBS, INC.
Thank you for this great honor to serve as your President of Nevada Garden Clubs. I so appreciate all the well wishes and encouragement you have given me already. I look forward to working with you all to make a better, more active and visible Nevada Garden Club.
My theme is:
MAKE A DIFFERENCE WHENEVER, WHEREVER AND HOWEVER YOU CAN—IN YOUR GARDEN CLUB, IN YOUR COMMUNITY AND IN YOURSELF.
I’m going to work towards this goal by encouraging all Garden Club members to become more active in our clubs and our community. As gardeners we have a unique talent we need to share with our Las Vegas Valley community: gardening successfully in this challenging desert environment. We need to share our knowledge, to educate the public whenever, wherever and however we can, in what we grow, even in how we arrange the flowers that others have grown!
I especially want us to educate the youth to become gardeners. They are the future caretakers of our gardens as well as our environment, the two areas are intertwined. We are already in several schools and after school programs. My goal is to encourage the youth to become successful gardeners in whichever venue we can interact with them.
I want to cultivate connections with other community organizations, schools and government entities. These interactions will increase our visibility in the community. We are also increasing our visibility by getting more into social media. We are on Facebook, we have a website, we have an email address. These sites keep the public as well as our members informed about our activities. Watch our website nevadagardenclubs.org for upcoming events and club news. If you have an event, contact publicity.
I’m asking all our members to be more active in our clubs and our community, your smallest act can make an amazing difference to even one person. If we are to be successful in all these areas, it will take a joint effort on all our parts.
Please join our National Garden Club in its mission to “Plant America” and help us to “Grow Nevada”.
Thank you again for electing me President; with your help we can reach all my goals for Nevada Garden Clubs.
