I joined Frisco Garden Club in 2008 when I retired from teaching. My husband and I moved here from Cincinnati, Ohio to be near our children and grandchildren. My neighbor was President of FGC and I quickly became involved in the Wildflower Luncheon and worked on the raffle and auction items. I met so many wonderful women and continued to work on Main Street Gazebo gardens and membership as well as the Wildflower Luncheon. The last 4 years I was Chairman of the Crozier-Sickle House at Heritage Village.
I have found that the best way to make good and lasting friendships is to get involved in the wonderful projects that the Frisco Garden Club sponsors. Through the years I have learned so much about gardening from our programs and fellow gardeners and have felt so fulfilled by contributing to the gardens and events.
It is an honor and pleasure to be President of this fantastic Club. -Linda Stricker

My grandmothers who lived in Kansas both had small flower gardens and both grandfathers grew gladiolas. My mother grew bearded iris several summers when we moved to Colorado but I think my love of gardening started with pansies. A couple of years at Easter my mother put pansies in our Easter baskets to be planted outside - in Colorado they are a spring and summer flower. Every year in when the weather turns "cool" enough I plant several flats of pansies using bone meal and then sprinkle the plantings heavily with Rabbit Scram to help keep the rabbits away.-Kathy Stone
Will record the minutes of all meetings, read all correspondence, and conduct all correspondence as directed by the President.
In 2012, I was invited by a close friend and Club member, Dottie Jones, to visit Frisco Garden Club. I don’t know if she invited me because my lawn was on life support or because she knew I would find kindred spirits, gathered to learn about plants, horticulture and the environment. Whatever the reason, I found a place to blossom and grow.
