Message from the President

Dear Members:

Spring is here! The additional water we received last fall and winter have caused our yards to look very lush and healthy. Gardening time is definitely here and now that we have warmer weather, it is a joy to get out and enjoy our yards.

Our members will be voting on Board Members for offices that are available for the next fiscal year at our May 19, 2017 General Meeting. Membership dues of $40.00 for next year are due and payable now. Please send checks to our P.O. Box 954, San Carlos, CA 94070-0954.

Our Spring Plant Sale on April 22 had a good turnout and we were able to net $1019. Thank you to all members who worked or contributed plants for our sale. Quite a few customers asked when we were planning on having the next one!

Our tour of Filoli led by Tom Davids was very enjoyable despite the rain and we had a large turnout. The grounds were outstanding and the flower beds were in full bloom. We also toured part of the mansion. See the pictures taken by Renate at Filoli in the newsletter.

Our next tour is May 9 when we tour the San Mateo Park Japanese Garden, then stroll over to the Rose Garden and Fairy Garden. If you have not had an opportunity to sign up and would like to join us, you are welcome to do so. Please email or call me so that I have a more accurate count of how many members will attend. I hope to see you there.

See you at the May meeting.
