Hello LCGC members! Summer is here, and we hope you're all enjoying your gardens, your vacations, your families, and lots of outdoor activities.

The garden club will have a July lunch gathering! We typically do not have a summer meeting agenda, but at this lunch we will call a General Meeting so that the attending members can approve the minutes of our May meeting. Our new officers were installed at the May meeting, and in order for the club to commence our usual business, including our banking at Amegy Bank, these meeting minutes need to be approved. A copy of the minutes is attached here for your review. We look forward to seeing you on July 12 at Esteban's!

LCGC May Meeting

Our May meeting will be held at the beautiful yard and home of member Lizette Gaudin.

Wednesday, May 10, 2023

2222 Coveside St.

10:00 a.m.

Glen Cove subdivision

Kemah, Texas, 77565

This meeting is the last regularly scheduled meeting for the year. We will install the new officers who will replace those officers whose terms are ending, and show our appreciation to these outgoing officers.

Two important call-outs regarding our May meeting:

1) Our Treasurer-Elect, Marilyn Hakim, has resigned. Patty McElhany has stepped in to fill the Treasurer-elect position on the slate of incoming officers that will be voted on at the May meeting. Any comments on Patty's nomination are welcome prior to the May 10 meeting by replying to this email.

2) There is a proposed change to the League City Garden Club Standing Rules, which members will consider and vote for approval at the May 10 meeting:

Although ARTICLE VII-OFFICERS, Section 1. of the League City Garden Club Bylaws states: "The officers of the club shall be a President, Vice President, Recording Secretary, Corresponding Secretary and Treasurer", certain circumstances may require two persons to share an elected position, where one person will be the main contact, and both share and assist in all manners pertaining to the position. In this case, the Executive Officers must approve the Nominating Slate of Officers before the Slate can be presented to the members at the January general meeting. If the Executive Officers do not approve the Slate, the Nominating Committee must submit an alternate Nominating Slate of Officers.

Any comments on this change to the Standing Rules are welcome prior to the May 10 meeting by replying to this email.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the May meeting!
