As it has become an annual tradition, Tom MacCubbin was our first speaker for our 2016-2017 club year. He had many live plants and went over many garden tips for this time of year. He also awarded some of the members some of his wife Joani’s plant themed craft items for answering correctly FL plant capital questions.
