Our New President
Ann Ferguson : Ingomar Garden Club President 2016
Dear Ingnomar Garden Club
This is 2016-2917 is a new beginning and "GROWING FORWARD" gives us all many opportunites. Seasons change and so do we. Our gardens change and so do we. This is another growing time for our club and for me. I have met so many wonderful women in IGC and now I follow in their shoes. It is a privilege to work together with all o you. My name fills the presiden's slot but you are what makes this club go forward to what it is and will be. This new year gives us a continued chance to grow together andd support each other. I will need your support.
As Ken Druse has said so well,
"Growing Forward - Gardens, like the gardeners who nurture them, change with time. Vines climb skyward through the years.
Trees, the most vunerable of all plants, through the cycle of their lives and many will be here after we are gone. Gardens move (like my plants from Franklin Park to Sherwood Oaks in Cranberry Township.) Planting beds become filled with roots; shade appears where there was once sunlight. As I grow older I find that I am focusing more on less-individual prized plants close to the house, for instance. And I've come to rely on and find a new appreciationfor, self-sufficient varieties chosen, to grow beside the paths walked less often.
Thank you for this opportunity to humbly learn to serve you and grow forward,
