SPEAKER: Don Chafin Wednesday – 10/8/14 @ 7:30 PM

Our meeting is tomorrow night Wednesday 10/8/14 @ 7:30 PM at Fairchild in the New Science Village Auditorium next to the Butterfly exhibit. Don Chafin will be talking about “Bananas”. It should be a very informative meeting.

I spoke with Don, rather than bringing an unknown quantity of plants we will be able to pre-order plants after his talk which he will delivery to us at the Ramble next month or we can pick them up at his nursery earlier if you’d like. It should be a very informative and interesting talk which I know I am looking forward to. As usual please some fruit or a dish to share.
 
I’m looking forward to seeing everyone there!
 
Matt.
