SDIS Iris Sale

From: "atonite atsign" <atonite@hotmail.com>

The Sonoran Desert Iris Society will be having their first annual iris sale 
in Glendale, AZ on September 11 to raise funds. Members of the club are 
donating their extra rhizomes to the sale. Right now we have about 200 
pledged irises for the sale.  The names of about 15% of the irises are 
unknown, and will have to sell for a lot less. We do not expect any irises 
to be left after the sale.  Matter of fact, we are advertising the hours to 
run from 8AM to 2PM, but feel we will be done by noon.

Getting ready for the sale is quite exciting. Iris culture sheets need to be 
written out and copied, posters and advertisements need to go out, 
coordinating with Gardeners World for the space and getting volunteers to 
man the sale are all a part of what needs to be done to get to our ultimate 
goal of raising funds - but, meeting iris lovers from all over and educating 
new enthusiasts will be what makes the sale FUN.

Our next meeting will be on the first Tuesday in September.  We will be 
turning it into a "marking party".  I will post an update after the sale to 
let you all know how it went.

If any of you would like to help out by donating any extra irises you may 
have, you can email me at Atonite@hotmail.com for the mailing address.

Iris Sale Chairperson
