We continue to feel our way through the challenges this pandemic presents. Our club’s executive supports the belief that we all must do our part to slow the progress of this virus. In 2020 the spring meetings were cancelled, as well as the Spring & Summer Garden Shows. By August we resumed our general meetings. Rather than congregating in person, we’re gathering via Zoom, where we safely meet virtually.
We encourage members to participate in our Monthly General Meeting on Zoom. Each month a speaker shares with us their expertise on a variety of gardening subjects. Reviews say it’s nice not to be driving in the darkness of winter. Folks with hearing aids have also mentioned that it’s much easier to hear speakers via this zoom format than it was in the Hall. Hope to see you there.
The best news is that being out in the garden is safe! 🙂
Wishing you all good health and hoping to see you soon,
President, View Royal Garden Club
