The 2014 Board consists of: Regina McCarthy, President; Sally Knurek, 1st V.P.; Jean Smith, 2nd V.P.; Marie McCarthy, Treasurer; Marge Domitz and Brian Thompson, Recording Secretaries; Claire Evangelista, Corresponding Secretary. After the officers were installed, everyone enjoyed a delicious lunch, followed by entertainment provided by the Westlake High School Choir. Charter member, Lillian Bialosky, was presented with the Outstanding Achievement Award for 2013 for her many years of service to the club. Also, for the first time this year, an award was presented to Cahoon Nursery in recognition of their continued generous support of the garden club. For over 25 years, Cahoon Nursery has donated the tree that is planted by the garden club on Arbor Day. Thank you to Lillian and Cahoon Nursery for your many years of service and support. The club does not meet in January, but will reconvene on February 19, 2014 at Westlake Porter Library. A year of interesting and enlightening programs is promised. We wish you a very Happy New Year.
