Our October meeting will be Saturday, October 21st at 10 am at the Cornell Cooperative Extension office in Voorheesville. We will have a slide show of daylilies that won AHS National Photo Contest awards in 2016 in all regions. We have not yet located the by-laws for HADS so we are still working on elections of officers.

We are joining with the Upstate NY Hosta Society for our Holiday Party this year. We are hoping that in bringing the two groups together that people won’t have to choose which party to attend and we’ll have a larger crowd and lots of fun!
The party will be held on December 9th in the Fellowship Hall at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church, Corner of Glen Ave. and South Reynold’s St., Scotia, NY beginning at 12:00 Noon
