Annual Sale

Our main source of income for the club is our Annual Sale. It is through the hard work and generosity of our members that we are able to finance many of our events throughout the year. The daylilies that we sell are all donated by members from their gardens and we have lots and lots of beautiful daylilies for the sale. Any help you can give is sincerely appreciated. Even if you can only spare a few hours to lend a hand, it makes a lighter load for others.

Monday, August 13th at 8 am we will meet at Christl Schmidt’s house to dig the daylilies Christl is donating. Her address is 23 Tanners Lane, Rensselaer, NY 12144.

Tuesday, August 14th at 8 am we will meet at Marge Moon’s house to dig her donated daylilies. Marge’s address is 555 Grooms Rd., Clifton Park, NY 12065

Marge has also generously volunteered her yard for our work days. All the donated plants will be gathered at Marge’s house. We will meet there at 8 am on Thursday, August 16th and Friday, August 17th. The daylily clumps need to be washed of all soil, divided into individual fans, washed again and dried, and sorted into bags (which have been previously labeled with all the information on each daylily). They are then placed in boxes for transport to Faddegon’s on Saturday morning. It is an arduous and exacting process and it usually takes us the two full days to complete all the clumps We are thankful for any help you are able to give us. HADS provides lunch on both days for the workers.

Saturday, August 18th is Sale Day and we meet at Faddegon’s at 7 am to string up the signs and pictures and lay out the daylilies. We also set up two small tents for the members who will be totaling the costs for the customers and taking the money. People who are looking to buy start arriving early, but cannot come into the enclosure until 9 am. The sale runs until noon. We then have to clean up all our paraphernalia to leave the area neat and clean. Most of the workers meet at a local restaurant to have lunch, celebrate and relax.

Something New

Something New

An idea was suggested at the Picnic that we have a Daylily Swap at the September meeting. Everyone liked the idea so we thought we’d try it out.

Some of the details still need to be worked out, but the idea is that you bring in a couple of fans of one of your special daylilies and then you get to swap your fans with someone else who has a daylily you may be interested in adding to your garden.

By September, most of our daylilies are done blooming and it will be easy to remove the fans you want to bring to the swap.

You will need to bring in a picture of the daylily you are bringing and other information such as height, flower size, etc. so people will be able to judge what it looks like and how it grows.

More details will come in the September issue of the newsletter – watch this space!

Notes from the Picnic

It was a lovely day for the picnic! Warm, but not hot, with a breeze. HADS purchased sandwiches from Subway so people could select a basic sandwich and add any fixin’s. There were delicious salads and desserts. Thanks to everyone who came and contributed to the fun.

Cindi took over the co-chair duties – Bill was getting ready to go to Nova Scotia for the Regional. We should have a report from him at the September meeting.

Mention was made of how lovely the Display Garden looked and a motion was made and seconded to give HADS Bucks to reward all the people who worked weeding, edging and mulching the beds. HADS Bucks can be used to purchase plants at the Annual Sale and the Members’ Auction, or even used to pay membership dues.

The 2019 Regional Meeting will be held in Long Island. The Long Island club has already reached out to us to see if we were planning on bringing a bus down to the meeting. It was decided that HADS would hire a bus to go to the Regional Meeting. The Long Island club will reimburse us for part of the cost and they can then use the bus for transportation of attendees to the gardens that we visit during the weekend. People coming from North or West of Albany may want to meet up with us in Latham and travel with us to Long Island on our bus.

A suggestion was also made that we talk to people who come to the sale at Faddegon’s as they are waiting in line to get in at 9 am and encourage them to join our club. We are always looking to increase our membership and that would be an excellent opportunity.
