Dean’s Message June 2023

June is here! The tomato and cucumber plants along the south wall are thriving in the freshly tilled, warm soil. Basil starts are ready for planting, strawberries need picking again, and the blueberries are starting to blush. What a beautiful month to consider the abundant year of TAGO events! I’m so grateful to our board, artists, and presenters who brought such stellar programming to our chapter and the greater community. And to our members and guests in attendance – it’s always great to see you, and we deeply appreciate your participation as we continue to cultivate community and support for one another.

Program planning for the 2023-2024 season will begin soon under the leadership of our sub-dean, Wyatt Smith, and the program committee. We would love to have your ideas for the coming year, as well. What topics interest you? Have you been to other events (beyond TAGO) that you think would work out well for our chapter? As always, your thoughts are welcome!

Looking ahead, while we don’t have an official meeting in June, the board is exploring the possibility of a social event sometime this summer. Please keep an eye on your emails for notification and more information.

Also note the Saint-Saëns Organ Symphony, performed by the Seattle Symphony and leading organist, Thierry Escaich, on June 1, 3, and 4. Remember that Tacoma and Seattle Chapter members are eligible for a fifteen percent ticket discount though Seattle Symphony’s Rendezvous Program. Click here for discount instructions. Tim and I are attending this Saturday’s performance, and hope to see a few of you there!
