It is an exciting time to be a member of a garden club. We are living in a time of great change which also means great opportunity. Famous anthropologist Margaret Mead said, "Never underestimate the power of a few committed people to change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."

Please invite your members to attend district meetings to get a more complete picture of what being a member of California Garden Clubs, Inc., Pacific Region and National Garden Clubs, Inc. means.

We will be "Growing Together" this year - growing in knowledge, growing in friendships and growing in our commitment to make San Fernando Valley District the best it can be.
