Letter from Jo Sillanpaa,

President of the Michigan Division of the WNFGA 

Hello, Michigan Division members. Warm winter greetings to each of you!
Since sharing with you in our fall 2022 Michigan News, we had our Fall Council Meeting which was hosted by the Grosse Pointe Shores Garden Club. What an event with great hostesses – thirteen strong – ambiance, food, speakers and fellowship!


Oh, yes, and at this meeting we passed Michigan Division’s strategic plan. Thank you to our board for their diligence in putting together the document and to you, our members, for approving it as amended. It is a plan to make our division stronger. The day was organized and put together by a great team. It was good to see so many of you in attendance.


The main thrust of our strategic plan is to increase our membership and our donations to Associated Country Women of the World (ACWW). At our Fall Council Meeting, we collected many suggestions for increasing membership. We will review the suggestions and create a listing to be distributed to our branch presidents.

Secondly, we have begun to work on a trifold brochure to represent our Michigan Division and its connection to Woman’s National Farm & Garden Association and our branches. We hope to share the brochure with you at our Spring Council Meeting. Speaking of our Spring Council Meeting . . . , it will be hosted by the Troy Garden Club on May 11. See page one of the Winter Newsletter for information. Additional details and a registration form will soon be provided on the Michigan Division website and in the spring 2023 issue of The Michigan News.


Thank you for your continued work in your individual branches as we support our mission: to improve our communities through education and activities in support of agriculture, gardening and environmental stewardship. Your Michigan Division is working for you!


I hope you enjoy a cup of warm tea or cocoa along with your gardening catalogs as they arrive this winter.  

Jo Sillanpaa, President
