2015 Members-Only Auction, Potluck ‚Äď June 7, 2015

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?!

2014 CIDS Plant Sale

CIDS will hold our annual Plant Sale on Saturday, August 2nd, at the Washington Park Botanical Garden Exhibition Room. Doors will open at 12:00pm. We invite the general public to attend. The purpose of this event is to provide an opportunity for the general public to learn more about daylilies as well has provide opportunities for all to expand their garden with new or additional varieties.

At the sale, CIDS will have tables filled with a variety of daylilies for sale, all at very reasonable prices. They will be sold bare-root, meaning that they will not be potted.

The sale will also include a number of vendors, who are members of the club that have specialty daylilies or related products to sell.

The following information was passed along to members of CIDS:

Children’s area are Sharon, Nancy, Dave. (everything for children’s will be provided, except I may need another trowel). Nikki will provide seedlings.
