October 2017 - Mountain Garden Club New Member Social
A welcome to new members at the home of President, Wendy McVey

It was a beautiful Autumn mday as the Officers and Board members of the Mountain Garden Club hosted a "Fall New Member Social" at the home of President, Wendy McVey. Since it was such an unusually warm day for this time of year, we took advantage of the weather and moved the festivities outside.

Club Officers, Executive Board Members, Committee Chairs, and Special Project Chairs extended a personal welcome to relatively new members and addressed any ideas they had as well as discussing the many committees, projects, events and activities in which the club is involved. John Bruni (head of planning for the club) described how the club is organized and Annie Ficke distributed a quick reference booklet that detailed all the position descriptions.

This event created an opportunity for new and existing members to meet each other as well as the ability to become more involved in the various aspects of the club. New members expressed that they were happy to have a chance to mingle and find out more about the community involvement of the club and learn more detail on the various projects and programs.

There were 7 new members in attendance along with 10 of seasoned members who were either Officers and/or Committee Chairs. The total membership (as of the date of the social) was 191. It was a lovely day for all who attended.
