The 2016 Gesneriad Society Convention will be held in Wilmington DE July 5-9
Listen to an online radio interview with our former president.
Next Meeting: Saturday March 19 from 1PM to 4PM.
Be sure to be here for our March meeting which, please note, has moved to the 3rd Saturday this month so as to not to conflict with Easter. We'll be seeing highlights of last year's convention and the DVD we'll be watching is hot off the presses, so to speak. We'll be one of the first people to take a look at this interesting a DVD. It'll bring back memories if your were lucky enough to be there but if you weren't able to go you'll see fabulous plants from the show, the winners and runner ups. We'll be watching it on a wide screen TV at the Center so the sound and picture will be great. Be sure to make the meeting and enjoy the show!
