November Meeting: Thursday Nov. 5 7PM Garden Club Building Lorenzi Park

Program:  "Plant Photography 101" Important business:  Election of Officers

If you have an interest in photographing your landscape, favorite blossom or plant, you are invited to attend the Cactus and Succulent Society of Southern Nevada's November 5 meeting, 7PM at the Garden Club Building at Lorenzi Park (enter off Twin Lakes). Our guest speaker is Rick Holmes.  Rick is a long time member of our club, an avid hiker, and noted local photographer.  His many landscape, plant, and abstract prints are a tribute to his accomplishments.  He's agreed to deliver "Plant Photography 101" to help us all improve our skills.  Whether we are trying to capture the beauty of our own favorite plant and landscape, or to document troubled plants and insect infestations, the photographic tips given to us by Rick will be worth our time.   Come learn how to better document your favorite garden subjects.  (Yes, you may bring your camera if you have questions about it.  He will address as many questions as we can fit into our meeting time.) 

There are two other important pieces of business to conduct at this meeting:  1st we will elect an entire new slate of officers at this meeting.  Help determine who will lead and serve the club.  2nd, we will decide the agenda for the end of year December meeting. 

I hope to see you all there.  Susan Kent

October Meeting: Thursday October 1, 7PM Garden Club Building Lorenzi Park

If you have an interest in Agave, Aloe, and plants of Peru, you are invited to attend the Cactus and Succulent Society of Southern Nevada's October 1 meeting, 7PM at the Garden Club Building at Lorenzi Park (enter off Twin Lakes). Our guest speaker from California is Kelly Griffin. Kelly is an outstanding hybridizer of Agave and Aloe. This talk should be a good one! We already use plants from Peru in our landscapes. Kelly uses plants from all over the world and develops new ones appropriate for a variety of climates. If you can't make the Thursday night meeting, Kelly will be at Plant World with others of CSSSN on Saturday, October 3 (best time to visit is probably 10AM to 3PM). I hope to see many of you there. Happy growing, Susan Kent
