Where: Mounts Auditorium
Program: - Colin Friedrich "New Perennials for Tropical Shade"
We had a lively Holiday Meeting in December. This was my third time calling Bingo
and I think I am getting a little better each year. Since only 37 members attended
and we had ordered about 70 begonias All members went homewith at least one begonia
and many members went home with a few begonias each. Lots of excitement and laughs
were had by all. Food was most delicious and plentiful. At our January meeting we
must get serious about our Mounts Begonia Dedication in February, and as well as the
Tampa Begonia Convention of March 19 to 23rd. We are offering a bus for those
members who would like to go up to Tampa for a day trip on Saturday if we can get enough members to
sign up to cover costs. Frances has done an excellent job of checking out prices.
Come to the January meeting to find out more. We hope to have members enter at least
20 begonias to be judged. Are you working on getting any of yours ready to display?
We hope so.
