Cheerful and healthy greetings--it is certainly a new world that we are all enduring. This is not the spring we were anticipating. Yet, despite all the cancellations, our dedicated members continue to carry on. A lot of behind the scenes efforts will pay off soon!
How fortunate we are to be gardeners, supporters and enthusiasts for beauty! It makes us smile especially at the surprises that are popping up and emerging daily thanks to Mother Nature. This is a GOOD TIME to quietly and independently soak it all in. Enjoy and revel in the pruning and weeding--it does pay off.
What’s new? The Board of Directors will soon hold our first Zoom meeting. Our letters
of request for Annual Appeal donations are coming to our post office box, and Karen Hanson is documenting the funding which we are so much more grateful for, at this time. Residents are already asking about and anticipating our hanging baskets!
Treasurer Dave Hunt is carefully monitoring our budget and investments and we hope we will not have to cut back on everything that is already planned--Mead Park, Triangles, Lee Garden, and the train station renovation. Have you seen how gorgeous the mailbox drop is looking? It requires ongoing maintenance. Civic Beautification will schedule maintenance via emails while keeping social distancing in mind.
We so very much look forward to seeing you in person, but until then, see our note below on how to connect with your fellow NCBL members using our new Facebook group!
Barbara and Karen
