Our mission is to stimulate knowledge of horticulture, to encourage the art of flower arranging, to promote civic beautification, to work for the conservation of natural resources and to promote good fellowship among our members.
It is a privilege to be given the opportunity to serve as President of the Quail Valley Garden Club for the 2018-2019 year. I am grateful for the past officers, committees, volunteers and members for making the garden club the success it has been. I am thankful for those who have currently accepted the responsibility to fulfill these roles.
This year our mission remains the same as we work together to make our community a more inviting place to live. We strive to do this by engaging with each other as we beautify our neighborhood and pre- serve the environment. Our pursuit of knowledge about plants is en- riched as we learn from a variety of guest speakers, field trips, and each other.
In addition, we especially feel a responsibility to promote the educa- tion of the young adults in our community. During the past year, we were able to offer college scholarships to six Elkins High School stu- dents and to an A & M University horticulture student. This year we hope our support for these endeavors will increase through additional fund raising.
I look forward to another year of fun, great programs, awarding schol- arships, community beautification and sharing the love of gardening with you. Lynn Ellis
