"The Secret Behind the Garden Gate"
We want to let the secret out! You, the members, are the secret behind every garden gate, as we strive to do better in our gardens and our floral designs. Our goals this year are fairly simple: make new friends, nurture old friendships and increase our knowledge of horticulture and floral arranging. We also wish to learn how to better preserve our landscapes and our natural resources. We will achieve this through knowledgeable guest speakers, as well as field trips to fun and exciting places.
We will reach out to the community and discover how we can get involved through beautification projects, such as the Garden of Hope at the Kingwood library, which will be completed this year. We can both discover and fulfill needs throughout our community. We will educate the community by offering educational mini-series talks at the library.
Growth of our membership is a high priority, so that as a club we can stay vital. We will reach out to new members by inviting the general public to attend and enjoy our informative and entertaining guest speakers. We must continue to build relationships with the local media, and publicize events such as the annual tree sale, Yard of the Month and community enhancement awards.
Our goals will help us achieve our mission through our membership and our dedication to our community. We look forward to new ideas, opportunities to volunteer, and talking to people in the community about our club. I ask that each and every member of the Kingwood Garden Club step forward this year, get behind our club, make it flourish and grow in membership and continue to give back to our community. We the members are “The Secret Behind the Garden Gate”. Let’s have a great year and by all means let’s have some fun!
