General Meeting - Monday September 25
Although attendance was a bit lower than expected, the speaker definitely exceeded all expectations! Egan Davis, Principal Instructor of the Horticultural Training Program at UBC Botanical Garden, spoke on container gardening. It turns out that it's all about the container medium. An engaging and charismatic speaker, Egan had the audience on the edge of their seats about soil types, medium types, pot shapes, and the theory of how it all can be integrated to maximize container plant health. Long time Palm Society veterans were observed to be taking copious notes, and mumbling under their breath about wishing they had known all this years ago.
The 2018 wall calendars have finally been printed. A single copy has been mailed to every member as part of their membership. If you have not received your copy by Friday December 8th, please contact Charlie. Your mailed calendar includes a form for purchasing extras for those wish who to use them as gifts.
Annual General Meeting - Monday November 27
The AGM began with the year end social, including potluck items brought by members and calendar pickup for those who pre-ordered extra wall calendars. It was followed by annual reports and the election of the executive table officers for 2018. See the Society Information page of this website for the 2018 executive.The evening wrapped with Jay Rowland's photo extravaganza of the year's events.
*Email Communication Problem*
We have recently become aware that many of our general emails to members have ended up in spam filters. We are unsure why this is occurring but one possible solution is to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your address book, because most spam filters will allow emails to come through from known senders. The way to do this varies but with Windows computers, just right click on any email from palminfo and select add sender to address book.
