Fall in Love with Flower Shows Schedule

Show Notes from Linda White

Hello East Lake Washington District of Garden Clubs!!

It is finally finished, the Schedule for our upcoming District Flower Show in

September. Now we can all plan the Horticulture we can enter (and keep it

watered), choose a Design to enter and get creative, enter a fun Artistic Craft or

enter a beautiful Photograph and maybe even get your kids or grandkids to

enter the Youth section with a decorated pumpkin. It will be a fun show with

many visitors at the beautiful Bellevue Botanical Garden.

We really need people from every club to participate to make it a “GREAT!”

show. The show committee is working very hard to make this a success. We are

so fortunate to have this show in such a beautiful public space. Let’s show off

ELWD and all of our clubs! Enter the show and you too will “FALL in Love with

Flower Shows”.  If I sound excited it is because I am.

Let’s Keep Blooming,

Linda White, ELWD Director

2023 January ECHO

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,

Joyce Voldal

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.
