Beta II Chapter of the American Gourd Society
Louisiana Gourd Society
The purpose of the Louisiana Gourd Society shall be to educate, promote, and encourage the growing, culture, use, history, art and/or craftsmanship of gourds to our membership and the general public.
The Louisiana Gourd Society Inaugural Gourd Retreat, held on May 15-17, 2015 at Camp Hardtner in Pollock, Louisiana is in our past. It was a huge success. We had 14 students, 3 teachers and 2 guests. Attendents say they had a great time and would like to see it happen again next year. We will be posting images very soon. If you took any pictures and would like to see them added on our website, send them to Karen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We held a quick Business Spring Meeting and Elections. We decided to have only one Business meeting per year, plus we added the wording “Retreat” to our By-laws. We have a new Director, Judy Scott. Thanks Judy!
LGS open positions at this time include Treasurer, Membership Secretary and Website Manager. If you would like to serve as any of these and take on a more active role in the LGS, please let me know.
