MG Training

I made the drive to Magnolia, a few blocks from where we were for Garden Thyme, for today’s MG training for Columbia, Ouachita and Union Counties. They had a nice mix of people and they outdid themselves once again with the potluck lunch they provided. There was enough food to feed an army. mg training magnolia.15 (4)

It was a beautiful day for a drive, and I saw some gorgeous japonica camellias in bloom, but they were too far away to get a picture–here is an example, but not from today: 60 I also am seeing daffodils, crocus and of course flowering quince. Pansies and violas are also doing well this spring.

Last week we started something new for MG communication. We have started a Constant Contact account and will try to communicate via email that way. We have heard some complaints and/or confusion. Since this is new to everyone, we are sending emails via Constant Contact, and then forwarding them on to the county contacts with our old list. We will do this for one month,to give people a chance to sign up for constant contact–there is a link at the bottom of the page to sign yourselves up. After one month, we will only use Constant Contact to send emails from the state level. Local counties may choose to continue to use their normal methods of sharing state emails if they choose, or they can let their members sign up to use Constant Contact–it is totally up to each county. This does not affect normal county communications–you can still operate as you have. In this month grace period, you may receive the email twice, but just delete one. We already have almost 700 signed up, so thanks! If you have questions, don’t hesitate to ask. We have been having some complaints/concerns that not all emails get forwarded, or people are not getting things in a timely fashion, so we hope this can expedite matters.
