Since 2001, our newsletter has been published 10 times a year. The newsletter was appropriately named The Petunia Patch because the Petunia is the South Haven City flower.
The SH Garden Club members use the Newsletter as an interesting source for information about the club activities, regular meetings, special events, gardening reminders, helpful horticulture tips and information about members’ happenings.
How members are expected to participate?
To contribute information about member happenings, photos, events, write articles on topics of interest and ask questions of Ms. Smarty Plants.
The newsletter is computer generated by the Garden Club volunteers. Most interaction occurs via email so no travel is necessary to volunteer for the newsletter. The current and all past newsletters since 2007 are posted on the Garden Club website and mailed to those who request it.
How many volunteers are needed to do what?
4 total volunteers are needed:
Writer, Editor, Copy/Mail person.
Plus; all club members are encouraged to submit information to be included in each publication.
The newsletter has nominal cost as it is posted on our Web Site for the club members. About 10 copies of the newsletter are mailed out. Stamps are purchased from the US Postal Office. We receive no in kind donations.
