November Message from the President

Our former President and Vice President, Debbie Winterston and Lisa Hoffman, have safely arrived in New Mexico to begin another chapter in their lives. I know I speak for all members in thanking them for their dedication to our organization and wishing them well in their new location. I suspect there will be another herb group in New Mexico before long.


The November meeting was highlighted by a presentation by Kelly Knox on lotion bars, nifty little bars of oil and herbs that make your skin feel wonderful. Kelly is going to follow-up by being our monthly speaker in January. She will teach us how to make tinctures, balms, rubs and oils. You won’t want to miss this meeting.


At the November meeting we also nearly finalized our program schedule for next year. October and November are still available. See the calendar to the right for the first quarter of 2020. If you would like to speak on a topic, please contact me.


If you’re wondering why I’m writing the President’s message, it’s because I volunteered to replace Debbie and Lisa and Ada Brehmer volunteered to replace me as Secretary. Thank you Ada and thank you to the other board members who help keep us organized all year long.


December features our Holiday luncheon on the 6th. Carolyn Fallis, Betty Albert and Carmel Ashwill are organizing our event again this year. Hope to see everyone there.
