1:00 p.m. — Beginners meeting
Fred Bergman will lead a discussion about “pots and potting media.”
2:00 p.m. — Society meeting
[The following is provided by Glenn Lessenden, OSGKC Program chairperson.]
Our June speaker will be Leo Schordje from Chicago, Ill. He will be talking about Lycastes (“Lycaste, the Beautiful Sister of Helen of Troy”), an overview of the group, their culture, hybrids, and any other pertinent info on them.
Leo will be driving down from Chicago and will be bringing plants. In addition to Lycastes, Leo grows Paphs and has several interesting items for sale on his Web site. Advance orders are accepted (and I’m sure appreciated). So visit his Web site and see if any of his offerings interest you.
Meeting time and place is the usual, Broadway United Methodist Church, with beginners at 1:00 and the regular meeting at 2:00.
Leo will be arriving Saturday in time for dinner and has expressed an interest in Kansas City BBQ (surprise). We will be meeting at Fiorella’s Jack Stack BBQ in the freight house at 7:00p.m. on Saturday and all members are invited. Please send me a note by Thursday if you are planning to attend and I’ll make arrangements.
See you this weekend.
