Receiving and treating members and guests in a warm, friendly, welcoming manner is one of the goals of the Bella Vista Garden Club.

The Committee welcomes members and guests at club meetings and prepares a welcome packet for new members consisting of garden related brochures, information and flyers.

They furnish hand written name tags for guests. Permanent name tags for members with the club logo are available from Oscars in Bentonville.

Members and guests sign on appropriate sheets provided for that purpose.

Mentors are assigned to contact new members to personally invite them to club meetings and then sit with them at these meetings. They may offer tips or advice on how to garden in Bella Vista's rocky soil.

Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it.
