Co-Presidents’ Message

Kudos to the Membership! One of the joys of working with our talented membership is the ability to tap into their areas of expertise.  Not only do we have artists who have contributed original art for our yearbook covers, but also program presenters: birders, fresh and dried flower arrangers, world travelers, shamanic healers. All these in addition to bakers and tea sandwich makers and more who have shared their talents with pride and enthusiasm.  We send a special thank you to each and every one of you.

Let’s celebrate our !00 Anniversary by doing what we do best: a Garden Tour!  On July 11 and 12, 2020, members, friends and organizations will present an array of glorious local gardens that will be open to the public.  This is an “all hands on deck” event and an exciting one to offer the community.  It will provide funds for scholarships, programs and events.

On June 24th The Southern Vermont Arts Center will be the location of a celebratory cocktail party for members, their spouses and partners.  It will be a time to kick up our heels and enjoy a simply fun event in honor of our !00 Anniversary.  1920s attire welcomed but not mandatory.  Anecdotes, reminiscences and tales of old are encouraged.

These are just two of the many celebrations ahead in 2020, our !00 Year. We will keep you posted as events are added to the calendar.
