There is a chapter here in the eastern part of NC, but it only meets 3 times
a year and those meetings are usually 2 hours away. I didn't join for those
reasons. People tell me how lucky I am to have L. Zurbrigg so close to me
and I have been to his home once, but as a beginner, I sure couldn't take
advantage of his knowledge. Sure, it is wonderful to be a part of the list,
but I think having an active local club is very beneficial socially. Our
local daylily club meets once a month with wonderful speakers and fun social
events. I guess I should count my blessings on having that. No complaints,
Bill S. - Your regional sounds wonderful. I would like to try and make it.
I'll write you for a registration form.
