Happy New Year! May good times be many, good friends be near and may each day be filled with contentment and cheer.
I had a great year as garden club president. A big “thank you” to all the chairpersons who committed themselves to doing their best in order to make our undertakings throughout the year successful. Your smiles and the relaxed atmosphere made me look forward to the monthly meetings. Thank you for being appreciative, kind and supportive of your fellow members. To our newest members again “welcome” and hopefully we live up to your expectations. The sun is shining today – the sky is blue and the snow is still clean. In other words, it is a very cold day in Northeast Ohio. Important dates are currently being marked on my 2013 calendar. As I am progressing with that project, I realize the changes that have affected my daily life during the past year. Changes in one form or another have a tremendous impact on how we proceed and face the challenges during the coming seasons. Although months away, the joy-filled activity of the outdoors has suddenly become clouded, considering the chores that will come with spring. Am I the only one in the garden club who feels this way?
Enjoy the quiet time of winter.
