President's Message 2015
Our first year on the AFGC Board of Directors has passed. It has been busy year and we’ve accomplished a lot. We’ve dedicated two new Blue Star Memorials and finished up our Flower Show School series. We’ve helped the fight against Buffle Grass and encouraged recycling. I’ve been to all the District Meetings and am proud that they have put on programs to go alon
g with the Pacific Region and NGC President’s Projects. I’ve attended a couple of Flower Shows, a Fund Raiser and a Garden Tour. I’ve enjoyed going to the Pacific Region and NGC Conventions. I’m working with Josephine Vincze to put out the new AFGC Directory/Yearbook.
My theme “Arizona, Our Land-Be Proud, Productive and Preserve,” remains the same. Since the Blue Star Memorial Restoration Fund is well funded, I have changed the State President’s Project to the Flower Show School Fund. It is getting more and more expensive to put these schools on. We need to support these schools to educate our members and the public. I encourage each of our 20 clubs and 3 societies to make a donation to the fund. If each club and society would donate just $25, we would have enough money to put on one Flower Show School or help subsidize a series of Flower Show Schools. This would keep the cost down, so that more people could attend.
I look forward to working with you again this year.
