A message from the President:
What a year 2020 was for organizations like the Grimsby Garden Club. We changed the way we conducted all of our activities - and completed them all. I remember feeling confident that in 2021 we would be able to meet in person once again, plan all the events we enjoy so much and continue to help beautify Grimsby; just as we always had in the past. Well, didn’t 2021 come roaring in with a different idea!
I would like to reassure you that we are working hard to stay connected. You will be able to enjoy our monthly speakers via Zoom. If you haven’t had the opportunity to attend a meeting via Zoom please give it a try. I have no doubt you will enjoy it. Our presence on Face Book and Instagram are other ways to stay in touch and get some great gardening ideas. Be sure to follow Grimsby Garden Club on either or both! In fact, invite friends to like our pages and share our posts.
As much as the Board is working to keep things going we need your help. Over 80% of our members rejoin from January to March at our meetings. Even though you can’t renew in person this year, we do need you to renew as usual. Membership numbers are very important to the future of Grimsby Garden Club. You will be hearing more about how to rejoin from our Membership Chair, Mary McLaren.
When I say we need you it isn’t just for your membership fees (although this is critical to sustain our various programs). We always need volunteers to help with our events. I know we can count on all of you to keep Grimsby Garden Club strong.
You can be sure that when we can all meet in person again we will make it a celebration. In the meantime, stay safe and stay strong.
Yours in Gardening
Roberta Blackie, President
