Growing Friendships…

Dear Friends,
It’s been a long time since we’ve been able to meet in person. We encourage members to participate in our Monthly General Meeting on Zoom. Each month a speaker shares their expertise on a variety of gardening subjects.  Zoom is especially helpful for those who are hard of hearing or don’t like to drive at night. 
We’re getting very close to when we can offer hybrid meetings with both Zoom + In-Person options. (We had a successful test in Sept. 2021).   Through the winter flu season, we expect to remain with Zoom-only meetings but look forward to life opening up again in the spring.
Thankfully, being out in the garden is safe! 🙂
Wishing you all good health and hoping to see you soon,
Carole Carver,
Past President, View Royal Garden Club
(January 2022)
