In an odd twist, my garden club group in the mountains is co-hosting our District meeting (it cycles around the member clubs) tomorrow.
I never thought I'd be a member of a federated club, but was recruited by someone who's become a good friend, and who was one of the founding members of what is a wonderfully eclectic group of folks -- young, old, and everything in between.
We meet at different times and days each month, unlike traditional clubs. This helps mix things up and also includes many folks who work during the day, too.
I've TOTALLY appreciated the contributions of garden club work and my associations with garden club folks for the 3+ decades that I was a botanical garden staff member.
They do good things, and have done so for many decades.
So, thanks, garden club members!
