Focus of the installation was Conservation, so incoming officers were given a token made of a renewable resource which contained a message to remind them of their duties. Symbols chosen reflected some of the items necessary to complete a meal or a successful table setting. Frances spoke of the officers contribution of strength, vitality and resources as their projects and leadership are shared.
Heidi was presented with a Meat Fork that signifies the meatiness or importance of the office of President, a leadership function involving both responsibility and opportunity.
As a gift in recognition of her presidency during 2017-2019, social chair Terra Manton presented her with a bronze horse ornament that evokes her love of horseback riding. She named it Laurel in honor of Laurel District, with which CGC is affiliated.
Club members in attendance were given a Dinner Fork, with the admonition that we must not spend the next two years in the kitchen drawer,
but always be at the table supporting our officers and the projects and goals of the club.
