President's Message April 2015

Isn't it great to see new members continuing to join our club. Welcome to you all and I hope you enjoy being members of a great club that has been a part of the Coffs Harbour community for 65 years.

New people are always very important in a club like ours, because they bring ideas and enthusiasm which invariably helps invigorate and challenge us. Like all good organisations, our club must continue to work hard at being forward looking and open to change, so that we stay vibrant and relevant as time goes by. Having new members helps a lot in this regard.

So if you've been in the club for a while, please make our new members feel welcome. Introduce yourselves and get a conversation going. Many new members may want some advice to information - please help them out whenever you can. And above all, please remember our motto, 'Friendship through Gardens', and make everyone feel really welcome in our club.

If you've just joined the club. please make yourself known, and don't be afraid to ask questions if there's something you're not 100% clear on, or if you need some advice on a particular gardening challenge or opportunity. And please consider putting up your hand to help out on a committee or at one of our community activities - don't feel you should hold back for a while just because you're a new member - why not just get in and have a go.

The old saying about the more you put into something, the more you'll get out of it, is as true today as it always has b\een, whether you're a new member or indeed someone who has been around the club for a while. Not only are you likely to benefit personally, the club benefits too.
