Dear Garden Club Members,

Springtime has arrived and is blooming all around us!!

I know you are all looking forward to enjoying the Spring District Meetings, hearing the informative speakers and enjoying the anticipated fellowship. I also know you all have been putting in lots of time and effort into your club programs and projects and beautifying your communities because of all the GCSC State Awards submitted. Thank you so much for all you do to make our state stunningly beautiful. We do have so many beauty spots!

The presentation of GCSC District and State Awards will start at the Spring District Meetings, continue at the State Meeting and culminate at the summer EXPO in July. It will surely be a great journey to receive, share and celebrate the well-earned honors!

I look forward to seeing you at the GCSC State Meeting, Thursday, April 26th.  It will be held at the Embassy Suites in Columbia and we are so fortunate to have outstanding guest speakers: SAR (South Atlantic Region) Director Judy Barnes, from North Carolina, will update us on what the five states are doing (of which we are one) and Dr. Patrick McMillan, Director of the State SC Botanical Garden, Clemson, is excited to tell us all about the plans for new Birding Garden.

I encourage you to attend the District Meetings and the GCSC State Meeting! The meetings offer so much information and delightful fellowship, where you can glean much information to help your club year run smoothly and see and speak to other club members in your district and from across the state.

I look forward to seeing you all!
