Terri Ewers, Iowa President
Theme: "The Joy of Gardening"
Greetings! I am Terri Ewers, the new president of Iowa. Our theme for 2019-2021 is "The Joy of Gardening". We are going to explore what gives us joy in the garden, in nature, in cooking, in our photography, and in our lives each day.
1. To show ourselves and others the beauty of gardening.
2. To increase state membership. We are on the decline so we need to show others why we are a worthwhile organization.
3. To explore gardening for all-whether it is through photography, window gardens, container, or traditional.
A little bit about myself - I've just retired (June 30, 2019) from North Iowa Area Community College as the Vice President for Student Services. While I worked there for over 30 years, I've been involved in the garden club for over 40 years and have loved every minute. I'm a wife, a mother of 3, and a grandmother to 5. I've been happy to be involved as a club member, a flower show judge, and a member of the state board for a number of years. I look forward to working with the great women and men who make up the Federated Garden Clubs of Iowa!
