Summer Social August 21st

The summer social was well attended by members in the Vancouver area. Held in Pam Murphy's exotic garden, it was a relaxed affair with excellent potluck food and great catch-up conversations after the long winter and pandemic. Many thanks to hosts Pam and Jim Murphy, event coordinator Edith Camm, and others on the social subcommittee.

Virtual Garden Tour 2022

The tours submitted were fewer this year, likely due to the harsh winter and cool spring delaying the time for exotic gardens to look their best. Thank you to those who submitted tours! Members will have received an email with tour links in late August. If you are a member and did not receive this email please contact Charlie.

Hardy Palm International (HPI) issue #107

The editor hopes to have this issue distributed before year's end. If you have an article that you want to submit for this or a future issue, we'd love to hear from you! For details, please email Charlie.

Wall calendar 2023

Wall calendars were mailed to all members in late November as part of their membership, and all extras were sold. Thank you to all who submitted photos, and purchased the extras!

Annual General Meeting November 28th

The business part of the AGM went as expected, with the outgoing exec in some cases running for interim positions until the 2023 planning meeting on January 12. All were acclaimed. See the Society information page for the updated interim executive.

The second part of the meeting was a presentation by Pam Murphy on water features in the garden. This excellent presentation was enthuiastically received by attendees, and led to a lively discussion to round out our calendar year. Thank you, Pam!
