President’s Message

Dear Garden Club Members,
I hope you all had a wonderful summer! It is truly hard to believe the school year is well underway and the holidays are right around the corner! I have always looked forward to the Fall season, it is my favorite time of year! It does my soul good to feel the cooler temperatures, smell the seasonal change in the air, hear the leaves falling and observe so many migratory birds! I love the change in the colors and textures in my garden as well and I can’t help but think about all the perennials, shrubs and trees I want to plant….when I get a minute!

It has been very busy around here these past few months. The website has been updated and I encourage you to look at it and give me your feedback. This website is for you to get all the information that you need, so if it is missing something let me know! My first official issue of the SC Gardener is at the printer; let me know how it looks as well, again another source of communication with you!

Thank you all for sending me your Yearbooks. I can’t believe out of 199 clubs in the state I have received 127 Yearbooks! They are amazing! These are my souvenirs for being President and I treasure them since they bespeak of your interest in my projects and your dedication to GCSC!

Recently, the September Bird Walk had to be cancelled due to Hurricane Irma but I hope you will take advantage of the ones scheduled for each month up to and including January. They all have skilled and knowledgeable guides and you will learn so much about birds!

I wish you all good health, good times with family and friends, good weather, good birding and blessings for the Thanksgiving season!
