Pine Island Garden Club Meeting
Pine Island Elementary School Project
On Wed the 21st at 3:30 the Pine Island Garden Club is invited to tour the school grounds as part of our Pine Island Elementary School Project to create some new gardens on the grounds. Dr. Millins addressed the Pine Island Garden Club and we agreed to help the school.
The winner of the Calusa Land Trust's 2021 Most Popular Duck Waddle Restaurant is LOW KEY TIKI! Woohoo! The the other participating restaurants all did great! The Pine Island Garden Club volunteers sold 2,693 of the 3000 available tickets! That's phenomenal for a Raffle without a Race! Members can all be proud of the fact that we raised $13,465 for Calusa Land Trust. Thanks again for all of your support, we couldn't do any of this without you! Alice, Queen Waddler

PURPOSE: The purpose of the Pine Island Garden Club shall be to aid in the protection and conservation of natural resources, encourage civic beauty and roadside beautification, promote the fine art of gardening, and cooperate with other agencies in furthering the interests of horticulture and conservation.
RESPONSIBILITIES: THE Pine Island Garden Club is a working club and all members are expected to participate in club projects. Because we all want our programs and projects to be successful, there are general expectations of each member. These expectations include:
1. To pay annual membership dues;
2. To serve as an active member of one standing committee;
3. To serve on one refreshment committee.
In addition, there are specific expectations for the annual Garden Gala, our only fundraiser. Those are:
4. To donate:
a. At least one or more healthy potted plants for the plant table.
b. Baked goods for the bake sale table.
5. To work a minimum of a two hour shift the day of the Gala, or work a minimum of
two hours prior to the Gala assisting with preparation activities.
MEETINGS: Meetings are heid on the third Thursday of each month, excluding June, July and August, at the Fishers of Men Evangelical Lutheran Church located at 10360 Stringfellow Road.
Social time begins at 9:00 a.m. followed by the meeting at 9:30 a.m.
Renewal - Dues for a single membership are $25.00 per year, couple membership dues are $45.00 per year. The $25.00 single or $45.00 couple dues renewal must reach the Membership Secretary by the end of May, or a late fee of $10.00 will be charged.
First-time Member Dues if a new member is joining September through February, the dues will be the same as renewal dues with an added charge of $5.00 for the required nametag. Thus the total initial cost will be $30.00 for a single membership and $55.00 for a couple's membership.
If the new member is joining March through May, the dues for the present year will be half the regular amount ($12.50 single + $5 name tag, $22.50 couple + $10 nametags), but the dues for the next year will be collected at the same time. The total will be $42.50 for a single membership and $77.50 for a couple. There will be a $5.00 fee for a lost nametag.
Guests - Guests will be welcomed at their first attendance at no charge; a second attendance
requires a payment of $5.00. Further attendance will require membership in the Club. The second
attendance payment will be credited toward the membership fee.
I have read the above and will be an active participant in the Garden Club.
