MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Dear Garden Club Member:
Gala XXXV was a very successful fundraiser for Headquarters House. Thanks go to Chairman Joyce Komnick and her team for organizing and presenting Gala in Everett. Thanks to every member who attended and contributed. Designer Julie Reed was most creative in her design interpretations. The food presented by the Holiday Inn staff was delicious and well-presented in a timely manner. We all had a wonderful time.
The Pacific Region Convention is in Santa Rosa CA April 22-24. Those who attend will have a fabulous time. For details go to the website: pacificregiongardenclubs.org.

I want to shout out “THANK YOU” for this incredible honor of being your WSFGC President for 2011-2013. It’s been a wonderful journey.

As individuals and as a group you make a difference!
