The HADS Display Garden needs to be weeded and mulched. A work party will be organized next month.

The Regional meeting is being scaled back due to the poor response. It will still be held, but car pools will be used instead of buses and some meals will not be included.

June Meeting

Our June meeting is Saturday, June 16th at 10 am at the Cooperative Extension offices in Voorheesville. It’s sure to be a busy meeting with the distribution of babysitter plants and a silent auction of plants that didn’t make it to last month’s members’ sale. Some of the plants came from Wisconsin, where they also had a late spring and the plants weren’t ready to be shipped in May. We now have all the plants so we’re ready to rock and roll.

The babysitter plants will be distributed as usual. Names of eligible members will be drawn and matched up to the number of a babysitter plant. The member will take the plant home and care for

it until the plant grows enough fans, usually 5 to 7, to be brought back for auction at the members’ sale. The doting caretaker will then receive a fan
