Gary Whittenbaugh - 'Conifer Companions'
early shopping for chapter members
Once again, David and Nancy Nedveck have invited the Chapter to the nursery for early shopping; their public opening will be on April 16th.
Bring a bag lunch and we will gather in the barn to have lunch and socialize. This will be followed by a program presented by Gary Whittenbaugh from Oelwein, IA. Gary is a well known expert on conifers and has served in leadership positions in the American Conifer Society. His program is titled 'Conifer Companions' and Gary's thought on this is "The best companion for a conifer is another conifer!"
Following Gary's program the nursery will be open for shopping.
