President’s News







A Letter from the President! 


It is really difficult to believe that 2017 will soon be over.  As I traveled to each of the district meetings this fall, I was so impressed with all of the wonderful things that our clubs do.  It was very obvious to me that each club is an important part of the community it serves. I want to issue a special thank you to all of the clubs who helped with hosting duties at each meeting.  It was very apparent to me that much planning went into each and every meeting. The programs, decorations, and food were wonderful. Thanks to all who participated in any way!  

One big event in our upcoming calendar is the Flower and Patio show at the Indiana State Fairgrounds March 10-18.  We need volunteers to work at the booth, so if you are able to volunteer, contact Gerry St. Peters or Rosie Springer.  This event puts us in contact with potential members, so it is important that we are there to answer any questions someone might have.  An extra benefit of being an exhibitor is that our members can buy tickets for half price.  See promo code on page 4 to purchase tickets online at a 50% discount.    

Mark your calendars for our state convention hosted by the North West District on April 25-26, 2018 at the Blue Chip Casino in Michigan City.  The hotel and convention center have very nice facilities and I am certain that you will have a wonderful time if you attend.  

I would like to remind club presidents to fill out the club achievement form and send it to 1st Vice President Betty Leverett by February 15th.  

As we enter this holiday season my wish for each of you is that you have a wonderful, relaxing time with family and friends. 

Happy Holidays and have a safe and happy New Year!
