PRESIDENT'S LETTER

Let me first thank all of you who helped put together another successful Home and Garden Tour. We made over $12,000 for our grant program and community projects.  The seven months of hard work brings us together as a club.  A special thanks to our board for their calm leadership and support. It is amazing to see all the details that go into this event. Please plan on being a part of it next year.

As we go into our 40th year we are looking at our organizational structure.  We have a meeting on

Tuesday, September 11

10 am

In our regular meeting room

to discuss changes to our by-laws.  Please attend and let us hear your ideas about these changes.  An email has been sent with the details (look it up) or call to check on the time.  We have a great club but we need to insure that it stays strong and vibrant for the future.

Don’t forget our monthly meeting on September, 20 at Taos Tennis/Quail Ridge at 9:30. 


Nancy Johnson, President

Los Jardineros Garden Club of Taos

Proposed Bylaw Review Meeting on Tuesday, September 11th at 10 am

Taos Tennis Mtg Room

Please plan on attending this very important gathering to review the proposed reorganization of our governing and committee structure.  The new structure will rely on committees with 4 to 6 members to plan and implement our programs, tour and grant programs.  The committees are designed so committee members will spend, on average, no more than 3 hours per month on their duties.  Hopefully this will allow more members to get involved in helping to operate our organization.

We will vote on these proposed changes at our September meeting.

Here is a link to the proposed bylaws:  Bylaw Revisions Aug 2018.pdf
