On July 1, 2001 The Garden of Friendship was One Year Old!!
A Message from Founder - Deelight:
Hi Ladies and Gentlemen,
With our First Anniversary coming up, I wanted to write a letter to everyone. I can't tell you how excited I am about this. I'd like to tell you a little bit about how the Garden of Friendship got started.
About a year ago, I was a member of several other groups and found that although I belonged to the groups, I didn't really feel as though I belonged, and certainly wasn't making any friends. It was then that I decided I wanted to do something different, and hence, the Garden of Friendship was formed.
The Garden of Friendship has seen many changes since July 1, 2000. We have taken on a whole new look with new graphics. We have added new committees, formed many friendships that will last a life time, shared hardships and life's successes with one another, and grown to a membership of over 200 members.
Initially, there was myself and two other co-founders. One of the Co-founders had to leave shortly after we debuted due to medical reasons and the second left in January. At this point, I was crushed. I had no idea what to do but knew in no way could I run this show on my own. It was then, I turned to one of the close friends I have found in the Garden and formed the Garden Keepers. I no longer consider myself a co-founder. I guess now, the best way to describe my position is webmistress and owner of the Garden of Friendship, as well as Garden Keeper.
There are eight Garden Keepers in the Garden who all work together along with a team of Committee Leaders and Assistant Committee Leaders (and of course a judge in our midst) to keep everything running smoothly.
I'd like to say thank you to everyone for the part you play in making the Garden of Friendship what it has become. You have helped make my dream a reality. With our 1st Birthday/Anniversary approaching, we have formed a Special Birthday Bash Committee to help plan a week filled with fun and games. If you would like to help plan the party, please email either Mary
(firstname.lastname@example.org) or myself
For those of you who are not aware, I was in a car accident in January and suffered a fairly severe whiplash injury. I have suffered quite a bit through this and at times have considered taking a LOA, but have not had to as of yet. Things are looking up now and it looks like they have found the road to recovery, although it's a long one. I'd like to apologize on this note, because sometimes I fall behind on things and it takes me a few days to catch up. If you don't hear from me when you write, don't assume I have forgotten you, just please bear with me. I feel terribly guilty about falling behind like this from time to time, but sadly, it can't be helped. :-(
I'd also like to voice a concern for something. My Garden name is Deelight and I often sign my real name, simply Dee. I am terribly guilty of this and I do apologize. I started getting worried when I was signing email to customers from the office, Huggers, Deelight. :-(
