upcoming events in the mid-Atlantic area

July 5 - July 9, 2011 in Philadelphia, PA - our parent organization, The Gesneriad Society, will be having its annual convention in the middle of Philadelphia. The Liberty Bell Chapter is hosting the Convention, and we expect it to feature a stellar Show and selection of plants for sale. 

Then, on September 17, we will be having our Show and Sale. Although we usually have our show at the National Arboretum, due to the renovations we will be at Behnke Nurseries in Beltsville, Maryland this year. 

Our "regular" meeting on October 15 will be a joint meeting with the local begonia society group.

Then on November 10-12, the Mid Atlantic African Violet Society will have their annual Show and Sale in Timonium, Maryland, just outside of Baltimore.

Although the annual June picnic marked the last of our meetings until September, there's lots to look forward to.
