Those of you who are dues-paying members of the PBS have been 
enjoying the work of Marguerite English, who has been editing "The 
Bulb Garden," the society's print newsletter, for the past several 
years. Marguerite is resigning the editorship to pursue some new 
endeavors. I'm sure everyone will join me in thanking her for the 
wonderful work she's done. She is a great contributor to our little 

This means that we must find a new editor for this quarterly 
publication. The editor solicits articles and photos from authors, 
compiles these along with the various organizational business that's 
published in the newsletter, and collaborates with other volunteers 
(currently, Jennifer Hildebrand) to produce the finished layout. 
Printing and mailing are currently handled by our treasurer, Arnold 
Trachtenberg. The newsletter is currently running 12 pages (8.5 x 11 
inches) and has color photos.

The Board has decided that the editor shall receive annual membership 
as reimbursement for doing this work. Editors also enjoy making new 
acquaintances through their correspondence, and they learn a lot.

If you're interested in volunteering for this position, please write 
to me directly. Feel free to phone me if you'd like to discuss it that way.

I hope to hear from you!

Jane McGary
President, Pacific Bulb Society
