POTOMAC VALLEY CHAPTER NORTH AMERICAN ROCK GARDEN SOCIETY
Calendar 2007 & 2008
May 19 Our plant sale at Green Spring Garden Park. Contact Jim Dronenburg to volunteer to help. Jim says:
Setup will be on Friday the 18th at noon. Merry Bruns has once again volunteered to get the tent—who has the signs? -- and help is always welcome on Friday to price plants and generally give moral support and have fun.
The Green Spring Garden Day will open at nine, hopefully people (including me) will be there at eight to combat (or indulge) the gate crashers. Please give me (Jim Dronenburg) a call at work in Silver Spring 301 578 8914 – or at home 301 834 6515—to volunteer for whatever time you can give. And start potting things up! Label them, please, and if possible give a yell what you will be bringing and if you will need help with portage from your car.
The Plant Exchange will be the DAY AFTER GREEN SPRING, SUNDAY May 20th.
