A Letter from our President Kristin B. Thompson
Dear Garden and Flower Enthusiasts on Kiawah,
I am writing to both members of the Kiawah Island Garden Club, as well as future members and lovers of all things floral on our beautiful island. As the incoming President for the 2022/2023 season, my first thought is to send a huge thank you to our outgoing President, Deb Rowland. Deb led our group for two years through the pandemic, where we continued to have monthly meetings with excellent programs, mainly outdoors, socially distanced and masked. This continuity allowed all of us to have a sense of normalcy and a bright spot on our calendars. Thank you so much, Deb, for your leadership!
Highlights from the past two years have included tours, talks, social time and service projects. An excellent blend of program offerings which I intend to continue during my term. Our 2021/2022 program year concluded last month with a fabulous tour of some stunning gardens in Cassique. A very big thank you to those who opened their gardens to us: Dianne Lever, Gretchen Prater, Elizabeth Kroger and Karl Lutz, Suzanne Tibbetts, Deb and Jim Barr, Pam and Charlie Williams, Barbara and Tom McDuffie, Amy and Paul Creamer, Maggie Grzecki and Eileen and Mike Fiore. And a special thank you to our members who coordinated this delightful event: Edna Roberds, Carol Regan, Cheryl Boswell, Ky Bosnik and to Diana Mezzanotte who registered our attendance. For those of us living on this unique island, we certainly enjoy our incredible surroundings and the time and talents of fellow islanders. Thank You!
As we look to the future, I would like to encourage everyone to send me your ideas for future programs. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and I look forward to receiving your thoughts. My plan is to gather suggestions and to host a planning session in the next few weeks. The immediate goal will be to have a complete program calendar ready by early July. Thank you in advance for your participation and for your ideas for the future.
2022/2023 Kiawah Garden Club President
