The Albuquerque Chapter of the Hardy Women’s Society is also the location of the society’s leadership. Co-Presidents Penelope Eve Pomegranáte and Agnes Snapdragon handle all high level business issues and help coordinate the society’s efforts worldwide. These two Hardy Women represent the inter-generational makeup, determination and creativity of HWS members everywhere.
Penelope Eve Pomegranáte:
“Each morning as I stroll through the beautiful tree-lined streets of the Ridgecrest District with my two Australian shepherds, I feel blessed. Why do I feel blessed? For the views of the mystical mist-covered Sandias which embrace our city on the east. For the exchange of good morning nods with neighbors as they walk their dogs. For the joy I find in serving as Co-President of the HWS where sharing and neighborly courtesy are held in high value.
My first love is the creation of gardens wherever I may be. Perhaps this is due to my mother giving me the middle name of ‘Eve,’ which connotes a desire for knowledge and a need to nurture. Knowledge and nurturing go hand in hand. Here at the HWS, we know that, through trying harder, we can achieve these.”
“Having been a member of the HWS since I was 16, I am so proud to now be in a position of leadership with the society. I adore working with our incredible members and following their progress as they make their dreams become reality and take projects from idea to reality. We’re all in this together and the HWS is a rose petal shining with morning dew in the garden of life.
I particularly enjoy weeding my garden, long walks in the Albuquerque spring, art galleries, photography and music. My participation in the society has helped to shape me into the Hardy Woman that I am today!”
