The last meeting of the year for the Garden Club of Richmond took place in the home of Courtney Raska, 2022-23 president of the club.

She and her co-hostesses Deidre Doggett, Claudia Wright, Kelli Metzinthin, Roz Kavanaugh, and Sandy Scott offered an outdoor patio luncheon for the members to absorb the waterfront setting while they ate.

It was in this beautiful setting that Mrs. Raska passed the president’s bell to the new president for the 2023-24 term, Deidre Doggett.

The former president also personally presented her officers and committee chairman with thank you gifts for their hard work.

A thank you gift was also presented to the former president for her diligence in helping the club follow its goals.

New member Stephanie Williams was welcomed to the club as she visited with friends and other members.

She joins Theresa Crowell, who attended last month’s meeting, as the newest members to join the garden club.
