The Presidents Corner

The President’s Corner – by Joan Stoffer
It is that fun time of the year again when GVRS members gather for a picnic at Joan and Larry’s home.  The date is Thursday August 23rd and start time is 6:00 pm, RAIN OR SHINE!!  If the weather doesn’t favor us outside, then we’ll all find floor space in the kitchen and living room.  You don’t need reservations, but I would like to know what dish you are bringing – Jon Wier’s task is to bring the chicken, (note to Treasurer: bring the checkbook to reimburse Jon.)  Somehow we always seem to have enough and more than enough different dishes to please everybody.  I will provide the coffee, tea, sodas, and dessert, plates and utensils.  Since Judy and Rae’s move to our house, continued construction has made little time for gardening, so the landscape is not a thing of beauty right now so just look past that (and a garage full of yet-to-be unpacked boxes.)
Our September meeting will take place on the 11th – the SECOND TUESDAY OF THE MONTH.  This is due to FMG needing our usual space for something they have planned on the 3rd Tuesday of Sept.  Judy suggested a round table discussion (yes, I know our tables are rectangular!)  It has been such an unusual spring and summer, that I am sure you all have stories to tell about problems in the garden, and solutions you have tried etc. etc.  So bring your tales of woe to the table and we’ll all cry with you.
Show time is right around the corner too and if everyone does as good a job as they did in June, setup will be a cinch.  Just a little reminder – if you have books or magazines that you have finished reading please bring them to offer to the public.
Last, but not least, I want to tell you that we have gained a new member, Brian Smith.  Hopefully his work will allow him to attend our picnic so you can all meet him.  Brian is interested is rose growing, and hopefully, exhibiting, so let’s all help him feel welcome to our group.
