Lendonwood President's Update

February, 2014

Dear Friends of Lendonwood Gardens:

Lendonwood has just finished another successful showing at the Grove Home and Garden Show. Our booth was well received and a number of people indicated an interest in volunteering at Lendonwood.

While the Gardens have been sleeping through the winter, work continues on many fronts. We are in the process of submitting a grant request to Rotary Club for funds to repair the grassy space between the bathrooms and the pond. Also, we will be sending out membership letters at the end of this month to invite new and returning members in support of the Gardens.

Work also continues on the Oklahoma Garden with the installation of a new entrance gateway. Thanks to all our volunteers who have helped us add this new feature to the Gardens.

The annual “Wake Up the Gardens” workday has been scheduled for March 29, with a rain date the following Saturday. We always look forward to this busy and fun day of team effort. All volunteers are welcome to join us!

After the last few weeks of cold, cold weather, we wait for spring to warm the soil and bring forth the promise of budding flowers and trees. At that time, as the Gardens awaken, we and our volunteers are reminded of the joys and fulfillment of working for Lendonwood Gardens. Hope to see you there!
