Our meetings are going to be look a little different for now. With the current pandemic we are not able to hold our normal in-person meetings, so we will be switching to online meetings.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
We will be holding an online show table starting at the October meeting. To have your beautiful plants included in the consideration for judging, here is what you need to do:
-Provide 2 photos (one of the full plant and a close up of the flower) to the email address provided in the newsletter.
-Include species information and your name
-Deadline for photo submission is 10 days before the monthly meeting date.
Photos will be judged, and winners will be announced at the monthly meeting, with photos being included in the monthly newsletter.
We will be holding our meetings via zoom. Please check your monthly newsletter for the link to the meeting! We are currently working on establishing our upcoming speakers, so meeting topics will be announced when they become available.
