Letter from the Director

Dear Friends,

I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am for this next chapter at Reeves-Reed Arboretum! Throughout my twelve years working here I have seen such tremendous growth in the quantity and quality of the programs offered and in the number of visitors to the grounds. I love to tell the story of my first Daffodil Day back in 2008, when we had at most 40 people in attendance. Nowadays our events attract well over 1,500 visitors! Bigger, better, bolder – those are three words that come to mind when I think of my tenure at RRA.

One of the things I love most about the Arboretum is its sense of community. I have watched many toddlers I taught back in 2009 return as teenagers to volunteer. My hope is that when they are adults, they will return and share this special place with their own children. Helping to make memories is something I strive to do in the work I carry out every day.

If I have not had the pleasure of meeting you yet, please be sure to stop by and say hello. Until next time...

Warmly,

.

Jackie Kondel
