How about a big round or applause for our 2016 GDOGC Board and Committee volunteers. We were hoping for some new names on the list this year.

We have one in the greeter’s spot.

We have members who are doing a third year or more in their positions, members who are taking on two positons, and members who are just switching positions.

Paula Barber, a past president and 2015 acting President has agreed to fill the President’s spot again.

There is still is a need for someone to take on the Secretary position. The Secretary takes minutes at the board meetings, compiles them and distributes/emails them to the board and other board meeting attendees.

If you are interested in volunteering in any of the positons please contact Paula at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Despite the damp and cool weather in Tyler we had a fun trip.

The Tyler Municipal Rose Garden had tons of lovely roses and

a plethora of varieties still blooming and a wonderful idea garden with a nice variety of perennials that had us drooling.
They have a great visitor's center and gift shop and a museum

where you can see all the history and a number of the gowns of the Rose Queens from past parades.
Breedlove's landscape and garden center was also a pleasant surprise.

Lots of lovely plants, idea gardens and garden art.

They were very gracious to provide a place for us out of the weather to enjoy a delicious lunch from Skyline Cafe.

We had a great turn out for the trip of intrepid adventurers.

Hopefully some took pictures to share. This one forgot her camera.
If you have never been to these places we highly recommend you take the time to visit them.

Thanks to Cynthia Armstrong, Debbie Brooks and Paula Barber for setting up this trip.
