Five years ago, when I
founded the Garden of Friendship, I had no idea it would grow to become the
organization it has and to play such an important role in the lives of so many
of our members.
To many of us, the Garden of
Friendship has become a haven and helps to fill a void in our lives. Many
of our members are disabled, confined to our homes and the Garden offers
interaction which may not be available in every day life. Others turn to
the many wonderful friends we have found within our Garden Gates. Members
who do work outside the home appreciate the stability the Garden offers.
The Garden has touched our lives and hearts in many ways, yet the biggest reward
of membership remains the same, we share the special bond of Friendship.
As the Garden celebrates Five
Years of Friendship, I would like to extend a special thank you to each of our
members for the role you play in our success. The Garden of Friendship
relies on the contributions of our various committees, each one responsible for
a special role in the Garden. The continued efforts of our committees
contribute largely to our organization and success. I would like to extend
a special thank you to our entire leadership team. Our Committee Leaders
and Assistants do a wonderful job keeping all the individual groups running
smoothly. I'd also like to express my deepest gratitude to my Sister
Garden Keepers. Together, the ten Garden Keepers handle all the Garden of
Friendship administration, Site maintenance, discuss new ideas, address
problems, and maintain contact with all our individual group leaders.
Congratulations to our entire
Garden Family as we celebrate this wonderful milestone together. I look
forward to celebrating many more years of friendship together in the future.
Special thanks to everyone for the love and dedication you so generously give to
the Garden, and
Happy Fifth Birthday Garden of Friendship
