It is such an exciting year for the CGCW, as we are entering our 60th year as a club! Our club has made such an impact on the various gardens and community spaces in Weston over the past 60 years. I am proud to be a part of it's heritage and it's future. As some of you know already, I will be your President for the next two years, with new member, Mary Alice Karol serving as membership chair, taking the presidency in 2016. Thank you all in advance for your continued support and commitment to the CGCW as we move the club forward in our community efforts and education. We have a very exciting year planned in programming, and will celebrate in style in May at Anne O'Neil's gorgeous home with our 60th Birthday Celebration!
