On Sunday, May 15th, we will be having our annual Members Only Auction and Potluck. We will begin gathering at 12:00pm, and the potluck will begin shortly thereafter. The auction should begin around 1pm.
This event has previously been held at the Rochester Community Building, but we are excited to be using the Washington Park Botanical Garden building for this years auction. We will be in the same room that we use for our Plant Sale in August.
This event is reserved for current members of CIDS, and your dues must be paid in-full before the day of the auction in order to participate. This auction is an opportunity for CIDS members to obtain new daylily cultivars (usually) at lower-than-retail prices.
The majority of the plants that will be available for sale are coming from Brown’s Ferry Gardens, which is owned/operated by Charles and Heidi Douglas. The list of plants from this source is located below. CIDS members are encouraged to bring increases from the plants purchased through our clubs Plant Drawing program, and members may also donate other plants to be sold, with all proceeds going to CIDS.

Plans are set for our bus trip this year, and we’re already signing people up to join us for a great adventure!
Join us on June 20th as we head South and West to see daylilies and other perennials on display.
We’ll depart from the JC Penny Parking lot in Springfield at 7:30am. From there, we’ll head to Cottage Gardens, on to Josephine’s for lunch (it’s a CIDS favorite!), and finally to the Missouri Botanical Garden for the afternoon. We plan to be back in Springfield at 6pm.
Our next meeting is Sunday, June 7th, at 1pm, Rochester Community Bldg. Debra will open the doors at noon.
Last year we had too many desserts & not enough side dishes. We ask you to consider bringing an appetizer, side dish or entrée instead of dessert. The club will provide the fried chicken. Please call Sandy at 498-7320 only if you will eat the fried chicken so she knows how much to buy. Vegetarians be cool!
The potluck will be followed by a short meeting & the auction. Jacob needs the names of the plants you plan on donating so he can look the pictures up & put them in the slide show. Please send these to him at Br4un3r@gmail.com now.
Sandy has been planning & will prepare the plants from Selman’s. The Petersburg gals,
Ann & Margaret will be our auctioneers. Bring your checkbooks & Daylily Dollars.
Good food, good company, new plants. What more could you want?!
Our latest newsletter mentioned AHS Membership and it’s importance to the club. CIDS is a local, child-organization of the American Hemerocallis Society. As such, our club objectives include: “…Carry on locally the work of the American Hemerocallis Society…”
All members of CIDS are encouraged to also be members of AHS. Our club is planning to hold an accredited Daylily Exhibition in 2014, and one of the requirements for such is that 50% of our club be members of AHS. So, if you aren’t currently a member – whether your membership has lapsed or you haven’t joined yet – we invite you to register today!
See http://daylilies.org/AHSmemb.html for more information.

At the present time, CIDS is no longer able to order Plant Markers from Kincaid Gardens in bulk. In the past, the club has had them available for purchase at club meetings or to be ordered with the group for a discounted price.
Kincaid Gardens, who has traditionally been the source of these markers, has instead offered a $0.50-per-bundle (each bundle contains 25 markers) discount on all orders when the following discount code is used at checkout: DAY-CIDS2
If you would like to purchase more of the same tags that you’ve bought before, head on over to Kincaid Gardens. Be sure to use the discount code to get the best price!
