Dear ODCS members,

First off, a very happy and healthy New Year to everyone!

Our group Plant Order to King’s Mums was submitted mid-December.  Many thanks to all members who mailed in their plant orders in a timely manner, and to Farhad Nourbakhsh and Galen Goss in preparing the order summary. 

Some of you have neither send in your plant orders nor renewed your membership for 2023.  You may still purchase plants at our May plant sales.  Lisa Romano, our Membership Chair, will be contacting you by phone and/or email for membership renewal.  The Membership renewal is also attached to the email of this newsletter.  Please mail your Membership form and check to Lisa Romano.

Dick Waldschmidt, who has been our Supply Chair for many years has retired from this task.  We gratefully thank Dick for his service to the chapter.  In the last several years, Gary Holliday has assisted Dick in Supply Order.  Gary has also resigned due to health matters.  We wish both Dick and Gary good health and thank them for their help.

The 2023 Supply Order Committee will be chaired by Van Avondolio, assisted by Alice Buch. A huge applause to Van and Alice for stepping up to lend a hand.  We will be sending the Supply Order Form with the February Newsletter.

Our Zoom meeting will be resume on February 12th, 2023, 2:00PM.  Zoom Meeting information will be emailed to you as the date draws near.  Please save-the-date.  See you all then.
