January Message from the President

Greetings everyone.


Hope this finds you well and enjoying the New Year as much as possible. The good news is, as far as I know, none of our members have had Covid and let’s hope it stays that way.


For our February meeting, DonnaRae Caccavo will be speaking on Dill and has offered to host the meeting at Greenstone, where she and several other members live. The plan would be to meet at the park and have our meeting around a fire. If Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate and it rains, we’ll move the meeting to the Greenstone Barn. And if that doesn’t work, we’ll move to Plan C, whatever that is. More info to follow as we get closer. 


Looking ahead, I’ve been in touch this week with Rose Loveall, Morningsun Herb Farm, and our tour, talk and meeting are confirmed for May 7.


And we have Candice Canton, who is always a treat, in April. So, hang in there. We’ll get through this soon and be back to sharing smiles and hugs.


Jan Keahey
