Greetings from your
Vicki Sanders Corporon
This year our motto is “Dig in and grow the friendships and the fun!” Each of the Raleigh Garden Club members brings a unique skill set and unique interests that enable our wide diversity of community involvements and accomplishments. If you’re just learning about our club, please check out the About RGC section to get a sense of how the club has grown and supported gardening, the environment, landscape and floral design for more than 90 years.
In addition to my love of gardening, I’m an enthusiastic reader and retired librarian, so it became one of my goals as president to share titles of good books on gardening and invite member contributions. We can watch this list grow too, with your input!
And, as always, don’t forget to visit our Sponsors and let them know how much we appreciate their support!
