Notes from the Meeting of
January 7, 2017

We are still looking for a secretary – elections will be held in October.

There was no Treasurer’s Report. All was good with the Sunshine and Hospitality committees.

The budget included additional money for the Display Garden for mulch, edging, etc. More money was also added to the amount for supplies.

Sharon discussed the babysitter program and asked for ideas from members of characteristics they are looking for in daylilies. Unusual forms, edges, broken color and some of the new diploids were mentioned. Sharon and Frank are still discussing hybridizers.
