Our winter district meeting is quickly drawing near. On Monday, February 6, we will meet at Placentia Methodist Church at 2050 Valencia Avenue in Placentia. Meet and Greet at 9:30 – Business Meeting at 10:00. Tricia Schooley will be showing a film she created entitled “Claude Monet’s Magical Garden.” This will be followed by our annual Garden Auction. Each club is asked to bring a planted container or a basket of goodies for the silent auction. Please bid generously and be prepared with cash or check. The proceeds will go toward a scholarship and be added to the $300 we made last year. Your club should be starting the process of identifying a student, majoring in some aspect of horticulture. I will soon have an application form, sent to your club for you to submit to district for consideration.
*We are searching for nominations for the 2017-2019 district board. All club presidents have been asked to talk with their members about the opportunity to be on the board as District Director, Programs, Membership, Ways & Means, Treasurer, Secretary and Hospitality. By talking to your members, one-on-one, you are more likely to find someone who has thought about this but hasn’t said anything. Anyone interested can call one of our Nominating Committee members: Annie Hall Bouche, Launa Gould, or Jorja Puma.
*Betty Jackson has volunteered to lead our inspiration and flag salute for the remainder of the district meetings – February, April and June. Thank you, Betty, I really do appreciate this.
*Blue Ribbon Club statistics are due to me by December 10 so that I can send the list to the State in time for your club to receive the certificate. Of course December 10 has come and gone. Please email your application asap.
