JUNE DFGC MEETING CANCELLED! (6/7/2020)
DFGC President Connie Raymond notified the webmaster on Sunday, June 7, that the DFGC June Meeting is cancelled. There was no guidance provided regarding refund of any payments that have already been made. Check with the Registrar to whom payment was made for information on your refund.
PASSWORD UPDATE FOR MEMBERS AREA OF DFGC WEBSITE (6/5/2020)
Effective July 1, the password on our website for information used by members to conduct garden club business will change to DFGC-3210. It will also be necessary to enter member as the user name. (The same user name that is used on the NGC website.) An update to the password to the member area of the DFGC website is long overdue and the majority of content on this website remains completely accessible to members and the public.
It is highly recommended that club presidents notify members about this upcoming change, especially the club's yearbook chair and website chair. (As a yearbook chair for 13 years, I have found that publishing the NGC, CAR-SGC, and State website user names and passwords on the last page of the yearbook makes it available to all members all the time.)
