Floribunda Award 2020-2021

Mary Rahal

Within any group of people sharing an in common goal, one always seems to stand out among the others. Why is that? The simple truth is the dedication to achieving success for the common good of the group. Some call it an "overachiever", some say “superstar.” We say she’s our “Proven Winner”. Our VGC “superstar” Mary Rahal, came knocking at our door in 2015. Within her first year, it was obvious that we hit pay day. Mary’s professionalism, eloquent personality, soft temperament, and many years of business experience made a significant difference to our business operations and changed our way of thinking forever. Not only did she guide us out of a challenging place, but she also transformed our financial position, establishing the foundation for the future that will benefit the club for years to come. As if that wasn’t enough, Mary has spent her 5 plus years devoting countless hours ensuring our fundraising and special events were successful. Beyond her relentless dedication as Treasurer, she has offered her beautiful home and gardens opening them to our membership and to the public for Garden Tours to further our cause. Just another generous act of her dedication and team spirit. Wherever our cause goes, so does Mary. It is our distinct honor to present you, Mary Rahal, the 2020-21 Floribunda Award. Your exceptional commitment and service to the Village Garden Club of Dennis is truly an amazing gift for our organization. You never let us down. Thank you, Mary. Your impact on VGC will forever be remembered.
