The 2106 Topeka Area Pond Tour committee was formed at last months meeting and will be meeting next month (TBA) to discuss and review the current applications and process for next years Pond Tour. We already have 5-6 ponds that showed interest in next year and we need to schedule a day to go meet and greet the individuals requesting their Pond be on the Tour. The 2016 Garden Show Committee has been formed and again we will be meeting soon (TBA) to help design, coordinate and test run this years water feature. Lots of preparing and footwork is required with local vendors/suppliers to make the 2016 Garden Show display a success. We need your input and help. This years will be same as last with Topeka Beautification Association, Ward Mead /Old Prairie town and TAWGS teaming up to help drive home this years theme - "Movies" For more information on either of these Committee's please contact Chris Newel at 785-633-4854.
Club Meeting & Eye Opener.
This months meeting with Jamie Hancock is sure to be an eye opener. Jamie has been asked by Vice President and TAWGS Program Director Chris Newell to help bring a new vision to the Clubs existence that should revitalize the Club and also help us in establishing a membership drive to attract new members. So whether you are a current member or thinking about joining us in the future, we encourage your support and participation. Individuals and families alike can enjoy the benefits of ponding. Come join us for a discussion on where we go in 2016.
