October 2017


October Greetings!

Autumn has arrived with the ever-changing seasons - beckoning us to look forward to 2018. As your 2017 Los Jardineros President, I want to thank each of you for your support and enthusiasm this year. I believe each of you made this year a success as we laughed, learned and enjoyed together while giving back to the Community.

A shout out to all of you that worked with me behind the scenes. This year’s success is a result of your countless hours of hard work:

Executive Committee:
Nancy Johnson (President Elect), Kathy Fortner (Corresponding Secretary), Janet Scott (Recording Secretary), Reggie Mosser (Treasurer), and Judy Weinrobe (Ex- Officio).

Committee Chairs:
Heidi Smith (2017 Garden & Home Tour), Lucile Grieder (Garden & Home Tour Venues), Cat Hayden (Garden & Home Tour Publicist), Shelley Loveless (Garden & Home Tour Boutique), Victoria MacQueen (After Tour Party), Kay Decker (Members Only Tour), Mary Short (Membership), John Mayer (Grants), Dolly Peralta (Hospitality), Teppie Woolley (Programs), Carmen Lieurance (Field Trips), Carol Nelson (Garden Club Columnist Taos News), and Marit McHugh (Merchant Baskets).

2018 is almost here. To those of you who would like to be more involved next year, we welcome your participation.   Think about what you would enjoy doing.

We are now looking forward to this year’s last scheduled meeting - our Pot Luck gathering at Casa Benevides - Thursday, October 19th at noon. We invite you to bring something you enjoy making. Our Grant Committee will share the newly approved 2018 Grants as well as updates of our grants this
year. We will welcome Nancy Johnson as our 2018 President.

To all of you, thank you!  What a fun experience!

Meg Greenwood, President

Are you interested in becoming more involved with the Los Jardineros next year?  There are several committees that can use new members.  Many of these committees will require a time commitment of no more than a couple of hours a month during the Spring and Summer.  These Standing Committees are:

  • Grant Program Committee
  • Taos Beautiful Committee
  • Tour Planning Committee
  • Program and Field Trip Committee
If so, please contact Nancy Johnson, 2018 President, at tjnancy@gmail.com to discuss the best match for you.
