President’s Message

Dear Members and Friends of WNF&GA,

We have returned from our annual meeting in Nashville with a new slate of officers and a renewed spirit of the strengths and needs of Woman’s National Farm & Garden.  Our time together in Nashville was spent sharing the friendships we developed over the years and making new ones.  If you are a member, but not involved on the national level, now is the time to find out more about us and how you can add your talents to our organization.  If you are not a member, we would be happy to have you.  Contact us and we will tell you more about us and how to become a member.  An organization is only as good as the people who are willing to give their time and energy.  We feel we are blessed with wonderful members.  Join us!

Rita Urbanski

MICHIGAN BRANCHES CELEBRATE FOUNDER’S DAY

“AN INSIDE LOOK AT WNF&GA:  IT’S HISTORY AND LEGACY”
 
Founder’s Day was celebrated by neighboring branches Juliet, Troy and Warren having combined their meetings to share in the significance of the day.
 
Opening remarks to the 76 in attendance were made by Michigan Division President, Carroll Thomson and a defining letter was sent by National President, Faith Tiberio:
 
“Our founders certainly knew the importance of a system of independent Branches which are connected with each other and become one under a unifying umbrella known to us as “National.”
 
“National” provides legal protection, guidance and goals. Branches by themselves do wonderful, important work within a limited circumference of service.  Together, the Branches multiply and extend service and influence.
 
Consider National’s “Bee Project”.  Each Branch succeeded in doing what it could to ease this terrible nation-wide agricultural crisis; together all the Branches, all the members communicating, exchanging ideas and plans of action under the leadership of National truly made a difference.
 
I congratulate you.  I thank you and cheer you on.  Your founders knew that your combined Branches truly made a “Tree of Life.”
