AIS: Satisfying Personal Needs

	Back in the early sixties as a result of helping my mother claim 
plants from my recently deceased grandmother's garden, I became 
interested in irises and a lot of other plants, too.

	For several years, I wandered in darkness, not knowing there 
was an iris world out there.  Then, by accident, I discovered an iris 
show and was informed that there was a plant society called the 
American Iris Society, and was given an 'Invitation to Join' booklet.  
I did join and was welcomed into a world I never knew existed.  My 
interest in plants was changed dramatically as a result.  

     Over the years, I have seen ups and downs in the American Iris 
Society, but it has survived eighty years now and no doubt will 
continue regardless of what obstacles arise.  The greatest test, as 
I recall, was the closing of the central office.  Opposition to that 
passed with time, and so will the current problem.  I only wish I 
knew how and when. I feel there must be a compromise 
somewhere. Regardless, I will always need AIS for the many 
services it provides and will support it.

     I need TALL TALK, the TBIS bulletin, which has been 
outstanding from the first issue and continues to get even better 
with each new publication.

	I also need TBIS - as a friend and partner to AIS, but not as the
rebellious foe it seems to be now.
