December Meeting: We will be meeting Wednesday, December 13th 6:30 (please note the date and time) at the Franklin Park Conservatory. This is the time of our annual winter potluck. The Society will be providing an entrée, Members are asked to bring a covered side-dish, or dessert to share with other members and guests.

  This is mostly an informal meeting, without a scheduled program; it is a time to visit with friends, and celebrate the holiday season. While at the Conservatory, we encourage you to take some time to view the holiday displays, and tour the Biomes. We will also be electing officers for our 2018 Calendar year, and will be having a planning session for programs for 2018.

    Please consider volunteering for one of our officers positions. I am also hopeful that we can get the greater portion of our 2018 programs established by the end of our December meeting so that I can update our 2018 Calendar. Please let us know if you have a program that you would be interested in leading - a travel log, PowerPoint program, a workshop, a demonstration - a "Show and Tell" of some of your favorite succulent plants, - whatever you would like. If there are any gaps in our schedule, I am requesting that we put together a program committee, to complete our 2018 Calendar of Programs and Events.
