August meeting and newsletter

The Society meets at the Nevada Garden Clubs Center at Lorenzi Park August 5, 2010 at 7:00PM.  The board meeting will begin at 6:00PM.  All members are welcome.

The August newsletter has been posted.  July board meeting minutes are included.  Dick Askew contributes a note on the Totem Pole Cactus (Pachycereus schottii var. monstrosus).

Donnie Barnett is our speaker, presenting Cacti of the Northern Mojave and Adjacent Areas.  Donnie may have some items for sale so be sure to bring along a little cash for that as well as  for our famous plant raffle with Sam Valenti serving as MC.


July meeting announcement

We typically do not meet during the month of July.  However, the board decided to meet as part of a effort to re-establish some club continuity.  [This is my interpretation.  Refer to last month's minutes posted in the July newsletter for more info. -jay].  We'll meet at our otherwise normal place and time:

Garden Center at Lorenzi Park

3333 West Washington

Las Vegas, NV

The board will meet at 6PM as per normal and as usual members are welcome.  The meeting proper along with likely plant raffle begins at 7PM.

Our speaker for July will be M.L. Robinson.  He is a professor at the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension. He will be telling us about the new cactus and succulent garden at the Cooperative Extension building on Windmill near Henderson.   An article on that work will be posted here and/or in the next newsletter.  CSSSN members participated in planting of the garden.
