Message From The President

President Loesch presents Sunset Garden Club annual library donation to Lisa Phelan, Manager Paseo Verde Library 

 Gardening in the Southern Nevada Desert

Members of Sunset Garden Club, I thank you for electing me President for 2017-2018. 

I am looking forward to the opportunities that we have to continue to learn about gardening, horticulture, landscaping, conservation, floral design, and so many other things. I have chosen “Gardening in the Southern Nevada Desert” as my theme for the year.  Many of us have come from other regions that are much different than our local area.  We do need to consider the unique growing conditions of our Southern Nevada Desert.  

Our Continuing Projects will be: our Annual Flower Show; the Julia Menasco Rose Garden; Penny Pines; and Street Teens as we fulfill our Mission Statement.  We also need to be open to other potential projects that support our Mission Statement and benefit our community.  If you know of any opportunities where we may be of service, please talk to me or any of your other club officers. 

 We have decided not to have an Annual Fall Yard and Plant Sale fund raiser this year.  We will continue to look for other fund raising opportunities.  Suggestions for a fund raising project are encouraged.  Some members are going to be participating in some of the existing community parking lot sales starting in September.  Times and dates will be announced at our meetings and email notices will be sent.  Contributions of items and/or time to help for these sales will be greatly appreciated.

Arthur C. Loesch
