Message From The President

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

 

Members of Sunset Garden Club, I thank you for electing me President for 2018-2019. 

Meetings:

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. Our programs for 2018-2019 will include presentations by the Southern Nevada Water District, a UNLV Cooperative Extension Master Gardener, the Red Rock Audubon Society, Henderson Parks & Recreation, Boulder City Garden Club, a Sunset Garden Club Floral Designer and a Sunset Garden Club Iris Cultivator.  I want to thank our Vice President Nancy Bovill for putting together a great slate of programs.

Projects:

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.  This summer's project with the Henderson Libraries, a Dinosaur Rock Garden, to go along with the Libraries' theme "Libraries Rock" went very well. We now need to develop a project to go along with next summer's library theme "Outer Space".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. 

 Ways and Means:

We have decided to continue 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. We will continue to look for other fund raising opportunities.  Suggestions for a fund raising project(s) are encouraged.

 
Arthur C. Loesch
