Botany Belles and Beaus members, Debby Walters, Wendy Kramer and Marilyn Doornink with "And Then Some Award" recipient, Bonnie Ringer.

In this unusual year, what isn’t unusual is the commitment people make to others in their communities and organizations. The Wisconsin Garden Club Federation recognizes individuals who are willing to serve and do a little extra. Each year a person from each of the Federation’s seven districts is recognized and this year, Bonnie Ringer, a member of the Botany Belles and Beaus Garden Club received the “And Then Some Award” from the St. Croix District.

Bonnie shares her creativity, energy and organizational skills in many facets of the club’s activities. She is detail oriented and her well thought out suggestions contribute to the success of the club’s endeavors; especially the yearly tree sale and Christmas bird seed wreath sale. Gardening involves some labor, Bonnie helps with Baldwin’s hanging baskets and maintaining plantings at the Creamery and Windmill Parks. She lifts club members’ spirits with beautiful handmade cards. On the state level, she is a member of the Strategic Planning Committee. Her enthusiasm and positive attitude greatly benefit the club and the community. Thank you.

Normally, the “And Then Some Award” would be presented at a club meeting; those have been put on hold temporarily. A delayed presentation was made during bird seed wreath distribution at the windmill in November.
