Thank-you New Volunteers, The Presidency is Still Open

The Villages FNPS Seeks New President
and Volunteers for 2020

We have found volunteers to accomplish many of the tasks that Steve did as president. The president's responsibilities have been greatly simplified. He/she will run the meetings and keep us on task. The idea is that the vice president will help the president and move into the presidency. Email Steve at fnpsthevillages@gmail.com if you would like to be considered for this position.

In addition to a president, we need the following positions filled:

Vice President – New position created to assist and fill in when the President is unavailable.
Membership Officer - Myrna will continue to keep the members and contacts list updated in Mailchimp as well as manage the name badges. Ideally, the Membership Coordinator would be someone who likes to meet and talk with people.  They would check with guests to see if they are interested in joining.  Follow up with members who have not renewed.  Identify ways to create interest in FNPS and collect contact emails.

We also need volunteers for specific jobs / projects:

We are grateful for volunteers who have taken, or continue in the following roles:

Note: You do not have to perform the job alone. Jobs can be shared with a friend or spouse. Contact fnpsthevillages@gmail.com to volunteer.

Remember to ask for native plants when visiting any nursery.  Your voice and dollars are making a difference and helping us achieve our Chapter Vision:  “The Villages becomes renowned for its extensive use of native plants and award-winning native plant landscapes

A new study finds even common, beloved birds are among the steep declines.
