The following meeting will be at our Potluck & Auction, June 7th, 1PM. Sandy is ordering our plants from Selman’s. Sandy has been to his garden & says it’s exceptional. If you plan on bringing donation plants for the auction please attach a label with all the AHS plant info.
Remember to E mail or send Jacob the plant names before the auction day so they can be in the slide show.
