A few additional details:

  1. We will have a business meeting at 2:30pm. This is where we will discuss upcoming meetings, have a Treasurer’s report, etc. We will also be looking at the 2019 calendar and discussing whether we would like to host another Show. Please come at 2:30 to participate in this portion of the meeting.
  2. Please bring refreshments to share! If each member brings enough for 12-15 people, there should be more than enough to go around. Finger-foods are preferred, as napkins and small plates will be provided. If you bring something that needs a bowl, fork, or spoon, please bring those utensils.
  3. Our speaker will be auctioning-off select seedlings, and he will be showing photos of the blooms during this small live-auction. Come ready to bid! (Proceeds from this auction will be split 50/50 between William and HOIDS.)
  4. We have a few prize baskets committed already, but more are welcome! If you’d like to put together a basket to be given as a prize, please let me know your intention.
  5. We’re going to have a raffle for the baskets, and then a drawing for a door-prize as well.
