Happy New Year, WAGC Members!
I hope everyone had a relaxing and joyful Chanukah, Christmas, and New Year. Yes, our newsletter looks a bit
less artistic, but it is still filled with helpful information for you! I would like to thank Anna Abma for her many years of service as our newsletter chairperson; Anna has taken a new job to which she must devote more time, therefore, Deb Fisk and I will try to keep everyone informed about WAGC news and activities.
Also, we are in need of a web manager to keep our
website up and running, so if you are interested in helping out with either the newsletter or the website, kindly let me know.
We have been keeping Sally (Ditton) in our thoughts and prayers as she undergoes chemo every other week. Janet and Barbara delivered a plethora of little gifts from our members to Sally on December 19th. Also, Ginny Fleming recently fell while putting up Christmas decorations at her home, and unfortunately, she broke her arm and tore a tendon in her leg. Ginny will be at the Christian Care Health Center for about a month while she recuperates and receives physical therapy. It would be wonderful if everyone would send her a card to let her know we are thinking of her. Cards may be sent to the address below:
Christian Health Care Center
Heritage Manor West, Room 352W
301 Sicomac Avenue
Wyckoff, NJ 07481
Her phone there is 201-897-5394
Jennifer and Linda of the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference spoke at the Wyckoff Area Garden Club's September meeting 9/11/13. The history of the Trail Conference dates back to 1920 and it presently maintains more than 2,000 miles of public trails converging with 80 parks in our NY / NJ area. The work is primarily done through the donation of time from over 1,500 people who volunteer approximately 70,000 hours a year. In addition the Trail Conference monitors invasive plants that have the potential to take over these preserved lands.|
