November Meeting

Our meeting will be early this month – Saturday, November 3rd at 10 am – and we move to our winter meeting place at the William K. Sanford Town Library on Albany Shaker Rd. in Colonie. The American Hemerocallis Society (AHS) has slideshows that can be downloaded and we will show two of their shows; one on Early daylilies and one on Very Late daylilies. We hope to get some good ideas on what daylilies are out there that we can add to our gardens to extend the daylily season. We all have daylilies that bloom in July and August and it’s not difficult to get a good show during those months. But wouldn’t it be lovely to have daylily blooms in June – and still be enjoying daylilies late in the season to keep our wonderful display going a bit longer. Join us on Saturday, November 3rd to add some daylily names to your list of “must haves” for next year.

Holiday Party

Our Holiday Party with UNYHS (Upstate NY Hosta Society) will be Saturday, December 8th at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, 4 Northcrest Dr., Clifton Park, in their fellowship hall just off Rt. 146. We will gather at 12 noon with lunch to be served at 12:15 pm.

“Helping Hands” Toy or Book Donation:
We have decided to continue with our traditional theme again this year of “Helping Hands for the Holidays.” It was decided that we would ask both the Hosta and Daylily members to donate a NEW toy or children’s book that will be given to the Ronald McDonald Houses located near and in Albany Medical Center. The three-house complex has a special “Toy Closet” where a child can select one toy to take with them when heading for surgery or a major procedure at the Medical Center. We ask that those willing to donate should be careful to not purchase toys from bulk imported stores where the toy may not have US Safety Approval due to the way it is manufactured. Also, please do not wrap the gift. The ages for the toys or books should be 2 to 8 years old. If you have questions, please feel free to contact Cindy Jennings, the Holiday Party Chair
