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.
