Make a Difference - Join a Committee!

by Rebecca Weersing

Committees make things happen in our Society. Four well-functioning committees are Programs, Rose Show, Rose Haven, and Youth Gardening Committees. Why do they function well? Committee success can be explained in this way: (1) proactive chairs, (2) regularly scheduled meetings with minutes of the meetings, (3) committee members assigned specific tasks to complete between meetings, (4) committee members communicate by email, phone, and in-person between meetings and (5) committee members enjoy their committee work, actively collaborating to benefit our Society.

When you attend the monthly member meeting at the library, you enter Room B and sign in at the Membership Table. Those with roses to enter in the Little Rose Show will be able to do so in this room. Please notice that many of our committees have poster-board displays and photos of their committee activities in this room with committee members standing by to answer questions about what they do. In Room B stop to smell the roses AND chat about committees. On your way into Room A for our speaker stop at the Opportunity Table. This table is one of our Ways & Means activities that helps to support our member meeting programs. Thanks to Charlie and Jane Brodbeck—they dedicated and dependable volunteers.

During the month of June we have five committees that will be meeting. If you would like to attend a meeting or send comments and suggestions please contact the Committee Chair listed.

The first Wednesday (5th) the Youth Gardening Committee will meet to review the September 2012 – May 2013 Third Saturday programs and to plan for the September 2013 – May 2014 Third Saturday programs. Alicia Cline is the chair. Her email is aliciacline1313@yahoo.com.
