She has served as Co-Director of the West Low Country District, President of the North Augusta Council of Garden Clubs and her garden club, Terrace. She is a Life Member in GCSC. The community of North Augusta has shown her how groups and organizations can work together to accomplish worthy projects for all in the community. She would like to bring this spirit of co-operation to all the clubs in the WLC District.

I started to think about how far back I remembered flowers in my life. My first memory was as a Long Island grammar school kid on my way to school with my siblings. In the spring we would stop at a large honeysuckle bush where we would tear aprt the flowers to lick the nectar. Next was the lady’s house around the corner from me. Her small house was totally shaded by large trees so it was not possible to grow grass. Her entire yard was covered with Lily of the Valley. She gave my Mom a clump once and it multiplied over the years. I planted sections from the clump in every house we owned, even here in SC. My favorite memory is riding my bike and much later by VW Bug to the nearby ball field to cut Lilacs for Mother’s Day. She always acted surprise; it is still my favorite flower. I only regret that it does not grow here. I can’t imagine my life without flowers in it.

When I moved to SC I was determined to join a garden club. It was the second thing I joined after the Camellia Society. I have been the Aiken Garden Club Council President and the GCSC Recording Secretary but I am more honored to act as the Co-Director of the West Low Country District. I hope to meet as many of you as possible. Sandy and Anna will be a hard act to follow. I am good with faces but terrible with names so please remind me when we meet again. When I taught I used my seating chart well into January!
