President’s Welcome

A big, warm Texas welcome to all garden club members and other visitors to our Texas Garden Clubs website.

“Choose your Path and Make a Difference” is my chosen theme for the next two years promoting harmony by utilizing the hummingbird, which is the symbol for joy, strength, resilience, beauty and accomplishing that which seems impossible.

Each of us has our own unique talent and purpose. It could be plant propagation, floral design, landscape design, environmental knowledge, organizational skills, or helping teach both young and “seasoned adults” the joys and rewards of gardening. Together, we comprise the orchestra of Texas Garden Clubs which needs each and every one of us to make a difference. We all love gardening and the basic beliefs of garden clubs – sharing what we know with others. Guess what??? We can make a difference in the big scheme of things.

Having attended and thoroughly enjoyed all of our NGC schools, I will continue to support each. (Gardening, Environmental, Landscape Design, and Flower Show School, complete with Symposiums) Scholarships are another area of great importance to me. Our students are our leaders of tomorrow. I am a big supporter of all our scholarship programs with scholarships being awarded to outstanding applicants at the local, state, and national levels.

As for our ways and means projects…

1) Hummingbird pins in striking colors, earrings, and colorful hummingbird suncatchers will be available.

2) Idalia Aguilar has graciously agreed to chair the committee to update The Tapestry (a State History detailed President by President) with the assistance of all past presidents.

3) Paula Copty will be assisting me with putting a Texas Garden Clubs Devotional Booklet together with the help of each district.
It is both a thrilling and humbling honor to be your President for the next two years!! We will accomplish great things…Watch out Texas, ‘cause here we come!!
