 Our new President, 2017

Theme: Gardens bring Joy to one and the many

President, Roberta Stevens

The beauty of plants coming from earth, in all their forms; woods, trees, flowers, fruits, made into arrangements, loose or formal, or found in landscapes, wild or controlled, has pleased and intrigued me since childhood.  To be able to love, appreciate and to share this beauty with others who feel the same is truly a blessing. Sharing it with the wider community of Portsmouth through Civic Beautification makes it even more rewarding.
