Happy new year! We are getting at least a short cold spell in the East Mojave. Be sure to protect your cold sensitive plants!

We'll have our meeting this Thursday at 7PM at the Nevada Garden Clubs Center on the West side of Lorenzi Park. 800 Twin Lakes Drive.

Our new president Vicki Yuen will be at the helm though hopefully will still bring her CSSSN famous brownies for refreshments. Our speaker to start the new year will be our friend from the off the grid Destination: Forever Ranch and Gardens in Arizona, Jan Emming. His presentation will be a travelogue of cactus and succulent flora, wildlife, and nonsucculent flora in a similar vein to his South African program that he did for us few months ago. Check out his web site at: http://dfranch.com/.

Consider bringing along a friend, a refreshment, and a raffle plant. Dick Askew has been providing many plants most every meeting in 2018. Our plant raffels in 2018 were great. Keep it up. Hopefully Jan will bring some plants from the ranch for sale.

We were "featured" in last week's Las Vegas Weekly. I guess the weekly felt they needed to feature some other plants than cannabis sativa. So we may expect a few new attendees. We had a very good event at the Springs preserve in October where more potential members were met. Make them feel at home.

I apologize for not getting a program or event for November and December for you, but I had run out of gas for a variety of reasons. Our October dual speaker debacle worked out OK but was a little embarrassing. Our speakers adapted and gave great presentations. Both the October speakers will have books out in the coming year so we may see them again only not simultaneously.
