May 2015

Our next meeting is May 14, 2015. Yes, I know this is quite early, but I will soon be sipping coca tea and hiking the mountains around Machu Picchu, Peru. Best to get this off to you now. As of this printing, the meeting’s program is still classified as TOP SECRET.

We should thank Chris Ehrler for the slide presentation and talk at the April meeting. I thought it was a nice introduction for our new members. The plant table was complements of the vendors for our show. AND, the May meeting will feature some more of the plants.
