Palm Society Wall Calendar 2019
Thank you to those who submitted photo candidates for the calendar and photo contest. In the end we received 91 photos, more than enough to be able to produce an excellent calendar. After adjudication for quality and balance by the executive committee and calendar editor, 14 candidates were selected. Printing has been completed and every member was mailed a single copy at no charge as part of their membership. A few copies remained after the November 26th AGM and may be purchased for $10 each for use as gifts by pick up from Surrey BC only. Please contact Charlie if you still want some calendars.
Annual General Meeting Monday November 26
Heavy rain reduced attendance a bit but those who showed up had a great time. The business section included special reports from Arlene A. about important new changes to the BC Council of Garden Clubs, and a report by Rudi P. on his contact with Dan Hinkley and possible visit to his garden near Seattle next summer. The "elections" concluded the business section, with all 2019 elected positions filled by acclamation from a list of nominees submitted from the former executive. See the updated Society Information page for the 2019 executive. The first meeting of the new 2019 executive will be at John B's place on Tuesday January 15th. Although the elected postions have now been filled, the executive welcomes anyone who can contribute to making our Society a success.*
The break was a great social time with many potluck items, and calendars were distributed to pre-purchasers or sold to attendees. Fewer than 6 remained by the end of the meeting.
After the break Jay R's audio-visual presentations on Society activities and the photo contest entrants were a great way to finish the year. Thank you Jay for your great work on these, and to all the volunteers that made the evening a success.
Hardy Palm International (HPI) Fall 2019 progress
The new pdf version of HPI 102 (Fall 2018) is still being assembled, although progress is slower than we had hoped. Many excellent articles from a variety of authors have been received and we expect the final pdf version will be available before winter. Winter starts on December 21st, doesn't it? In any case members will receive an email with link once it's completed.
