President's Message

PresendentsFellow gardeners, we persisted through our 83rd Annual Standard Flower Show and Plant Sale, and had an absolutely awesome result for the pleasure of the community of Vista. You should all be proud of the
hard work and effort that went into the planning, setup and staging, attention to detail of the rules and requirements as set forth in the schedule, and the many hours worked by the many wonderful volunteers
throughout the weekend at the Jim Porter Recreation Center. The center itself looked wonderful after the City’s renovations and made the perfect venue to show off the bounty of horticulture presented by all entrants, the amazing educational exhibits created, the stage decorations, and the handsome plants offered for sale. So give yourselves a round of applause for a job very well done! Remember this the next
time your club needs your help: “Well, that’s time I’ll never get back” said no volunteer ever! It’s true, because it’s the pure joy of community service, as each and every volunteer will agree.

We’ve had a wonderful year, and now that it’s coming to an end, it’s a bit sad. However, at our meetings, we toured some amazing gardens, made some wonderful garden creations, learned many different aspects of gardening and horticulture by presenters, and of course, enjoyed some really great finger foods. Our Fall Fundraiser was an enjoyable and successful event. Our special tours were informative and to everyone’s delight, revealed the true love of gardening! Lot’s to plan and look forward to for next year! We would love to have you join us in our endeavors to make next year even bigger and better to give everyone the most bang for their buck!

Your Co-Presidents,
Mary Dahlberg and Mimi Gizoni
