President’s Message

Dear Members and Friends of WNF&GA,
Renewing friendships and acquaintances was the highlight of our national meeting in Cincinnati. We welcomed eleven first time attendees, who we hope left with a greater understanding of our organization. We also hope these ladies return next year to forge the friendships they started. We would like to see other members who are willing to share their time and talents with us. For those of you who are not members, contact us and find out what we are all about. We are an organization with a long history of educating and sharing our love of plants. If we do not have a branch in your area, you can become a member-at-large.
We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you in the Finger Lakes region of New York next Year!
Rita Urbanski
President WNF&GA
