In this ECHO EXTRA you’ll find information and 7 attachments for the upcoming events listed below. I know there’s a lot of attachments and I did get a message from hotmail that it was big and sharing on One Drive might be better; I haven’t done that before but if you’d prefer things that way I think my daughter would be able to help me. Let me know if that’s the way you’d like it. They also should be up on our elwd.org website soon. I tested sending this with a friend and she mentioned it looked different when she looked at it on her phone and like I’m seeing my copy when she saw it on her computer. So hope you’re able to see everything – let me know if you have issues with it. Also, If you have any questions about things, let me know – if I can’t answer, I’ll find someone that can.
Your not so techie Mailout Chairman,

Lana Finegold, former ELWD District Director, WSFGC State President and now Pacific Region Director encourages our members to attend any or all of this convention. Since it’s near our district, commuting would be possible or staying at the hotel can be fun – you’ll be meeting members from other states in the Pacific Region (WACONIAH – can you name these states?). Business meeting parts of the convention are mainly for state officers and chairmen but you can register part time and chose the meal(s) with speakers you’d like to hear. As a member of WSGFC we get a little break on the registration fee because we are the host state this year. If you have any questions about things, let me know – if I can’t answer, I’ll find someone that can.
June 5-8 Washington State Federation of Garden Clubs Convention in Olympia. Attachment 2023 Convention Flyer – Save the date message – more info wil come out later.
