Annoucing the new Editor... | Daylily News!!

It is indeed a happy Monday as I can announce that as of last night, Winnie Garabis of the Columbus, Ohio area is the new Editor for Region 2!

Winnie brings with her a refreshing enthusiasm and a designer's eye for daylilies that will serve our membership well. We are very lucky to have her on board in this capacity. Right now she feels like a kid at Christmas with all the new equipment, software and information she is receiving.  I am so excited about this opportunity because she is very open to new ideas and is thrilled to be part of the team.  That is a recipe for success!  You can email her by clicking here.

As soon as this week she will begin assembling the Spring edition of the Region 2 Daylily. Winnie's first issues will require us all to pitch in and help as much as possible - providing articles, photos and proofreading support for Winnie. I hope that if she reaches out to you for assistance, you will be quick to respond and deliver help. We expect the Spring issue to mail the first weeks of May.  Click here to see past issues of the Region 2 Daylily.
Developing, growing and publishing a regional newsletter is a job that takes patience and dedication. Region 2 has been very lucky over the last five years to have had Narda Jones as editor of our Daylily. With a budget of over $20,000, five states and 28 local clubs to work with, Narda has stitched our region together three times a year with a stellar publication we are all proud of. Her efforts at leading a quality publication have been recognized twice by the AHS with the "Best Newsletter Award" from all 15 AHS regions. Thank you, Narda for your years of service and good luck with your next journey. We will miss you at the helm!

We are eager to take Narda's foundation to the next level. If you have any questions, concerns or comment regarding this announcement, please let me know.  You can call or email anytime.

Welcome to the team, Winnie!
