November Meeting featuring Todd Boland from MUN, followed by AGM

Nov 13, 2016 - 1:00pm - 4:00pm

Note the unusual starting time for our first speaker: 1:00 p.m.

1:00 Speaker: Todd Boland - "The Arctic Alpines of the Newfoundland Limestone Barrens"

2: 30 Speaker: Steve Hootman - "Rhododendrons in the Wild: Highlights of Plant Hunting in Asia and Beyond"

Note: Because there are two speakers, it has been decided that the Seedex preview will be postponed until the December meeting.


Our AGMs are always brief. Our by-laws state "There shall be an Annual General Meeting in October or November ... Fifty members shall constitute a quorum with a 65% approval required for passage. In the event that there are insufficient members present to form a quorum, the decisions of the Governing Committee will prevail."

Bring your mug and a friend.
