2014 April General Meeting

We had a great time at our April 10, 2014 general meeting. This time we had a “white elephant” sale during our informal coffee, after the speaker break and after the meeting. Our speaker was one of our members Theresa Schretzmann-Myers. She spoke on amaryllis and she taught us in order to kept our amaryllis color from changing for the next amaryllis generation we must not let the bees pollinate our flowers. Instead hand pollinate before sunrise before the bees can do it for us.
