IT’S A NEW YEAR FROM THE GARDEN CLUB
January 7, 2022
Dear Fellow Club Members,
In-person meetings will be determined on a month-by-month basis, with the eternal hope for a “green-light”! In the meantime, please be thinking of our Garden Sale on May 7th! It may be an abbreviated sale, perhaps all outdoors, but it will not be the online style we used last year. Yes, the Garden Sale is a fundraiser for the club, but it is so much more! It is a time-honored tradition of the Flotsam & Jetsam Garden Club and is a significant reason our club has maintained an outstanding reputation that reaches beyond Kitsap County. It provides our community with healthy, interesting, and affordable plants and gives beginners a boost in becoming life-long gardeners. As much as anything, the Garden Sale is tremendous fun and a chance to get to know fellow members. It’s a “not-to-be-missed” event – for volunteers as well as for the community!
The upcoming months are when a lot of important things happen in the club so we will do our best to keep you informed and involved. If you get a request to serve on a committee, please give it special consideration! A bit of time from many makes a huge difference, and it can be fun – really!!
Thanks to you all,
Jane Ritley, President

GREETING CARDS AVAILABLE
Hopefully by now you are familiar with this lovely image from Maia Eisen’s garden that is on the 2021 directory cover. Cards are being printed with this image. This year the cards are larger and on nicer paper than past years. A set of five costs only $8.00. That will save you money and a trip to the local card shop. You will be ready to send a note for the next special occasion. If interested, contact Lenore Lynch. They will also be available at our next meeting.
COMMITTEE REPORT — PHILANTHROPY
Surely in 2022, we will once again be able to meet together in person and celebrate each other and those we are privileged to serve. Thank you so much!!
Please take care of yourselves and stay well.
