Members of the Sunset Garden Club, thank you for the privilege to be your President for the years 2023-2025. I will do my very best to live up to all the past presidents and their hard work. With a new gardening year ahead of us, we look forward to a year filled with interesting programs and speakers, and maybe taking a field trip or two.
The library theme this year is “All Together Now”. I thought this theme was a great way to start the year with perhaps taking a second trip to Springs Preserve, perhaps we will visit Bloomin' Desert Herb farm that Rosalind Gibson talked about at two of our meetings this past year. What a great way to start out the year.
We are all so glad Covid is behind us and now look forward to a year filled with good health and happy days ahead. We will make new friends and keep our old friends near and dear to us, and hopefully grow our garden club membership this year. In order to accomplish this, can we all agree to volunteer for at least one or two activities this year? Perhaps it can be the flower show, or volunteer to make a flower arrangement for one of our hospitality tables. It takes a great team to make a club, and I know all of you have accomplished this and will make an even greater effort to volunteer for something this year.
Our continuing projects will be our Annual Flower Show held in April of 2024, the Julia Menasco Rose Garden, Penny Pines and Street Teens as we continue to fulfill our Mission Statement. We also want to remember our veterans and those fallen heroes when we place our Memorial Day flags. We will also look forward to flower shows, and other gardening/planting events at Lorenzi Park, home of the Nevada Garden Club.
We hope to do a summer project with all three Henderson Libraries next year. We need to be amenable to other potential projects that will support our Mission Statement, as well, that will benefit the community. If you know of any other opportunities where we may be of service, please do not hesitate to contact me directly or any of the other board members.
We continue to look for other fundraising opportunities this year as well. So many of these efforts have been put by the curb with Covid.
With that said, I wish all of you good health, new opportunities and remembering the mantra We are “All Together Now.” Thank you to our Board, and our garden club members for all you do for our community.
Dahl M. Capello, President
