OGC President's Message
"And all at once, summer collapsed into fall." This quote by Oscar Wilde certainly seems appropriate with our changing weather. I love seeing the leaves in all their autumn colors and the chrysanthemums in full bloom. This is one of my favorite times in the Pacific Northwest!
We welcome new members to our organization that meets on the last Thursday of each month. Even during this strange pandemic our club membership is growing with over 80 members now. I look forward to the time when we can once again meet together in person, safely. I'm hopeful that it will be very soon! I can hardly wait! Until then we will stay in touch with our Covid "Zoom" meetings.
As we move toward the holidays we are all looking forward to participating in our annual Merrie Makings event. Our work parties are such a good way to get to know each other better! While socially distancing and safe, we'll make beautiful holiday centerpieces, wreaths, and mugs. As a friend once said, by sharing our common interests, friendships are formed beyond gardening!
Happy gardening, happy gathering!
