- I can't believe it's been a full year
since Pete and I began doing the newsletters for the club. We hope
you have enjoyed them and that we are providing a service to you by
keeping you informed. There is an added bonus to our getting involved
with the club as we have done. It keeps us going to the meetings, for
one thing. Often there would be times where we really don't feel like
going out, or the weather is bad and we want an excuse to stay home,
or maybe we would rather go somewhere else or we're tired from a day
of garden work. I could think of many excuses not to go.
But you know what? Because we have made commitments to
our organization, we don't look for excuses to not come to the meeting
or not to get involved. An added bonus: Practically every year for
the past five years, we or both of us have won a Presidential
Rhizome. The odds are in our favor because we don't miss meetings if
we can help it.
And besides, we enjoy the social time with friends we
have made. We enjoy the food, too. And we enjoy programs when we
have them after the meetings.
Therefore, when 11 Presidential Rhizome drawings are
made each year, and we have attended all 11 meetings, our odds are
greatly enhanced to win a wonderful, new rhizome for our garden next
