Hello my fellow gourd enthusiasts,

As your new president I am thrilled about the possibilities for our organization.

Although I've been a practicing horticulturist for many years, I am very new at growing gourds and even more inexperienced in doing gourd art. Nonetheless, that does not discourage me and hopefully to some new members it won't discourage you either.

We have abundant talent in our society and I am eager to capitalize on, not only as artists but also as representatives of our group. Presently my plan is to have patch gatherings monthly. Having said that, we are a state organization and monthly gatherings will likely mean traveling to the host site. And I hope this will not be a problem for anyone.

I would like to invite all our Louisiana Gourd Society members to the next gourd patch gathering which will be held at Judy Scott's home in Alexandria, LA (see directions in the news). We will also have a very informal meeting where I would love to have discussions about the future of our organization. Any ideas or suggestions you would like to share will be immensely appreciated.

Thank you Judy for graciously sharing your home!

Look forward to seeing you in Alexandria, LA.

Jackie Carlisi, President
