 Hello NM Gourders,

 You may have noticed that my name was not on the election ballot. After much deliberation, I decided not to continue helping to run the NMGS.    I am proud that we have been able to keep the NMGS going, In October of 2022, the New Mexico Gourd Society will be 20 years old! I feel honored and privileged to have been a part of keeping the gourd spirit alive in New Mexico. But in 17 of the 19 years of the NMGS, I have served in one office or another to help run the society, and I feel the need to do something else in my life right now. It is not an easy decision for me, as the NMGS means a great deal to me, and I am one of the founding members. I have gotten to know so many wonderful people through the New Mexico Gourd Society. I was told in the beginning that "Gourd people are Good people," and I have found that to be most definitely true. I am confident that the new Executive Board will continue to keep the love of gourds alive in New Mexico. (We will announce the results of the election next week.) I look forward to supporting NMGS in a new way, and hopefully actually seeing your faces in 2022!

Sincerely,

Kitty Riordan

NMGS Executive Facilitator
