Membership Procedure

Members are encouraged to bring individuals whom they believe may make good candidates for membership to any of the monthly meetings except September, December and June. Please notify the Membership Chair in advance if you are bringing a guest to one of the Club meetings. She will have a name tag printed for your guest and make a special effort to welcome her to the meeting.

The Proposal letter, one Seconding letter and two letters of Support are due to the Membership Committee by March 15th, 2022. Proposer should include a brief biography of the candidate.

For your letters, they should include how you know the potential member. You may want to write about her background, education, spouse, children and past volunteer history. Please also focus on skills, talents, gardening experience and what she could contribute as a future member to our Garden Club.
