 \  Spring Notes...
   from the desk of District X Director, Emilie Palmieri

April 25, 2014

This director attended both the Deep South & FFGC Convention in St. Petersburg last week along with 32 other members of District Ten.  We sure had a good, good time.  This spring meeting marks the one year anniversary as your District Director.  We can celebrate for many reasons: 1st, I finally have an idea what I am supposed to be doing, and 2nd, there are only 11 months left.  All kidding aside, it has been a busy year: state board meetings, writing reports, sending emails, answering emails, writing articles for both the Florida Gardener and our Bloomingtales.  This director has been invited to a few garden clubs in our district.  It has been delightful getting to know members and sharing in your meetings.  Thank you for making me feel welcome.  I am Happy to say I am starting to have fun, I'm still married, and have 3300 extra miles on my car.

This director is very proud of all of the clubs in our district who applied for awards.  I am not going to spoil the surprise, but it is hard not to brag a bit when you are District Director and a member of a very special club with good leadership.  We can all be proud to be a part of District Ten, full of powerful women and men.  Our Awards Chairman will present all these awards this afternoon.  If you are not in it, you can't win it.

While reviewing the annual clubs reports, this director is delighted to know that several clubs are giving back to their members for all their hard work and dedication:  FFGC Life Memberships, Pillar of Pride, Earth Steward awards and scholarships to FFGC/NGC Schools, Short Course, District meetings, as well as Convention.  Our delegates will be voting at today's meeting to allocate funds for these very same ideas.  This director also learned that our clubs are not as involved with our youth as we could be.  At our September Lunch & Learn, we will have a workshop explaining how to start a junior garden club, along with lesson plans and ideas.

Each club has increased their membership; now let's keep them.  All clubs should review their goals and learn what its members want from their clubs.  Remembering Goals are dreams with a deadline.

Let's all return to our roots by helping our youth and improving our environment.  We can make a difference one community at a time.

FAQ Frequently Asked Questions:
How do I submit information and photographs for posting on the District X website?

Information may be submitted directly to the webmaster either in an email or an email with an attachment.  Information is for FYI purposes and should not be too lengthy. These events are usually open to members, guests, and the general public, and often provide income to the club/circle. Give specifics such as Sponsoring Club/Circle; Name of Event and brief description; Date; Time, Place (with directions if needed); Admission (if any), and contact person's phone or email address.  If the Club/Circle has their own website please advise and we will provide a link to the site as well.  Also, if Publicity or Additional information has been posted on-line ( i.e. YourHub, etc.) please provide the link to the article and we will include this as well.

Photographs should be in JPG format, no larger than 5x7 and emailed to webmaster as an attachment.  Please identify the event and individuals or particulars in each photo. Usually we try to keep number per individual club to no more than six (6) because of limited space.

Any additional questions may be sent directly to the webmaster.

Who can I contact about finding speakers for my Club/Circle meetings/programs or interesting ideas for destination day trip adventures ?

District X has a wealth of information that has been put together in a Resource Directory that has been compiled by Donna Swift of the St. Lucie West Garden Club. FYI, this was a herculean undertaking and Donna should be acknowledge and thanked for personally taking on this invaluable project. Her contact info is: DonnaCobbSwift@aol.com

If you have 'discovered' something new and exciting please share.
