I want to thank the Live Oak Garden Club for electing me as your club president and I will strive to fulfill the duties of this office to the best of my abilities.
As you read through the yearbook and see the great activities and programs that have been planned, think about how each of you would support these worthwhile projects with your involvement,
As we enter our 80th year, please accept my thanks in advance to everyone for helping make this an outstanding and memorable club year.
The Live Oak Garden Club supports many important projects within the community and FFGC with monetary support through our fund raising activities. The Spring Fling, Fall Fest, and Caladium sales have evolved throughout the years and are successful thanks to the involvement of all the members of the club.
The various workshops; gourd painting, stepping stones, floral design, and fun with flowers, to name a few, are a success thanks to the very artistic and talented members within our ranks. The Board, and particularly your President, is open to suggestions for any future workshops of interest to the members and possibly the community at large.
I feel that it is important that every member reach out to their friends and family as potential members with special emphasis on the young people in the community to become involved in a Junior Gardener program. We have a start in that direction with the Green Team and the campers we have sponsored in Wekiva and SEEK.
As a Garden Club, it is essential that we conduct periodic “Clean Up Days” at our facility so that visitors will experience our property at its horticultural best. With this in mind, my theme is WITH YOUR HELP, WE CAN PUT OUR BEST FOOT FORWARD.
