Greetings from your
RGC President
Vicki Sanders Corporon

Can’t wait to see you, ladies and gents … as we reunite with tales of summer gardening, travels, family and friendship gatherings, and all the other refreshing delights. Send me your garden pics for the Glorious Gardens & Garden Glories segment!

I’m also looking forward to sharing photos from a place not-so-near to me anymore, but dear to my heart: The Huntington Gardens of San Marino, California. I’m hoping you’ll be inspired by the beauty and plant variety in these spectacular gardens.

You’ll also get updates from the various committee chairs. They will provide an overview of the year’s upcoming activities. AND, you’ll be able to pick up your new RGC yearbook for your reference on activities, member contacts, sponsors, and important reference information on our club and affiliate state and national clubs.


I’ve added another fiction title to our Suggested Reading list. This one takes us to our coast for a remarkable introduction to marine ecology and “life on the edge” of existence. Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens kept me up till 3 am the first night and by the next day I had finished the tale. Gripping! It’s a mystery, a tale of survival, a love story, and a testimony to the compelling life of a devoted naturalist and artist. I was one of 4000 on the waiting list locally (for one of 400+ copies); it was worth the wait!

Happy gardening, reading, and the growing of friendships!

See you at the September luncheon,


As always, please visit our Sponsors and let them know how much we appreciate their support!
