Each year Naples Garden Club is faced with the same decision we all face personally . . . what to do with the money that remains after we budget for fixed expenses.   Members attending our January meeting helped prioritize how we spend our “discretionary” expenses by completing a short survey.

Programs were overwhelmingly number one for the 56 members who completed the survey, followed by Grants and Scholarships.   Respondents also felt that increased support of Naples Botanical Garden and earmarking one years’ operating reserve expenses were important.

Member input is appreciated and will be integrated into the 2017/2018 budget.
