Our hosts for the Fall Plant Swap are Bernadette de Leon and the PE Officers. We are planning an exciting day for members and their guests. We encourage all members to register early and bring a guest/new member or two! Please share this information with your friends, garden clubs, and like-minded groups.
9:00 – 10:00 Setup* & Continental Breakfast
10:00 – 10:30 Plant Swap and initial clean-up
10:30 – 11:30 Gardening for Butterflies presentation
11:30 – 11:45 Business Meeting
11:45 – 12:30 Light lunch & door prizes
12:30 – 1:00 FINAL CLEAN UP -- Please Help!
*Set-up will follow the usual plan, shared here for our new members and guests. We recommend digging plants or packaging bulbs/tubers/seeds by the night before the swap. Label all plants clearly and keep the area underneath the table for plants that you have selected during the swap and plan to take home. While setting up, enjoy some continental breakfast and start looking for plants you may want to swap. At 10:00, we will start the swap. Please only take one of the same plant in the first rounds, as others may want that plant.
NOTE: To make plant labeling easier, one full page of this letter can be completed with your contact information.* Feel free share the PDF with others. (*Tips: Fill in the information on a print-out and copy that sheet as many times as needed. Also, use those unsolicited address labels that charities send to you.)
Topic: Gardening for Butterflies
Speaker: Sandy Belth
Please bring a gift for the door prize table. It does not have to be fancy or expensive, and we all enjoy the fun of door prize drawings!
New Membership Model:
If you have come to two swaps without joining or renewing your membership, we now are asking for a one-time membership fee of $10.00 membership. That’s right, you will not need to renew again unless this new model does not match our costs of producing a digital newsletter and having a website.
You can pay at the swap, or, more conveniently, include the $10 with your registration ($20 total) and via mail to Victoria Witte (1300 E. Maxwell Ln., Bloomington, 47401) by September 5th. You can also pay via this website.
For additional information on the swap, you can access the full newsletter under the member area.
Online Registration and our Website:
To access the member-only capabilities, go to the Member Only link on this page's menu and follow the instructions. If you have not previously registered online, you will fill out a registration form. If you are a paid member under the new lifetime model, disregard the instructions to send in membership dues. You will receive access to the member area after registering and receiving an access approval email from the web master. If you are registering as a new member, you may pay via Paypal or mail in your membership fee as described above.
