Thank you for this very helpful announcement about the annual meeting.

or do sales continue afterward--or alongside the meeting? How is is

Here is information on the annual meeting. Please read all the way
through as there is a request at the end.
The Annual Meeting of the IGS will be held on Saturday, July 8, 2006
in Arroyo Grande Women's Community Building, 211 Vernon Street, Arroyo
Grande CA 93420.
The cost is $15 per person. Registration fee is payable in advance to
Bob Weissberg, 1080 Hetrick Ave. Arroyo Grande, CA 93420. Checks
payable to CCGS. Advance registration is necessary for the caterer
and seating arrangements.
The event is scheduled from 10 a.m. to about 2:30 p.m. The main
speaker is David Fross, co-owner of Native Sons Nursery and coauthor
of two recently published books, California Native Plants for the
Garden and Ceonothus. Both books will be available for purchase at
the meeting and the nursery will be open to our group after the
meeting. The nursery specializes in plants adapted to a Mediterranean
climate including some geraniums and pelargoniums.
There will be a catered lunch and door prizes in addition to the sale
to benefit IGS. Vendors (Robin Parer and Sandy Connerley so far) will
have plants available for sale also. Donn Reiners will mount a large
A number of more interesting plants were retained from the Central
Coast annual sale for donation to the IGS fund raiser.
The main purpose of this email is to ask members for donations to be
used in the fund raising portion of the meeting.
Do you have Pelargonium or Geranium related items that you can part
with to be either auctioned of sold for the benefit of the IGS?
We have a few items already donated. An example is Vol. 1 of the
Pelargoniums of South Africa, the 2 edition in English published in
Germany. We could used a lot more items. Books, household items,
pictures and even specimen plants.
How about plants for the IGS sale table. DO you have spare plants
that are hard to find that another member would want? A plant that
needs attention from a new owner perhaps. Your scraggly unusual or
hard to find plant just might be a treasure for someone else.
Please contact Bill Lemke (GARDENERBILL1@AOL,COM
<mailto:GARDENERBILL1@AOL,COM>) if you have questions or want to make
arrangements for a donation. Items can be brought the day of the
meeting. Let me know if you have something to donate. If you cannot
make the meeting, postage for items can be arranged if needed.
Thanks for reading this.
