The meeting on 11/10/2019 was great! David and Doris Bishop's presentation was enjoyed by all, it was a great presentation. Loved all of David's hats, and everyone talked about how much they wanted to go and visit the Bishop gardens after the presentation.
Please welcome our new member Doris Williams and our returning member Lyn Lumpkins!! (both are included on this distribution list, so please update your ChDC list to include them, as well as Jack Baxter who joined earlier this spring!)
After the speaker meeting, we conducted our regular business meeting. The membership decided that we will continue to hold most of our meetings (including the January holiday meeting) at the Hadensville Fire Co #6.
We also elected officers for 2020-2021 as follows:
President: Margo Reed
Vice President: Angie Bowald
Secretary: Aimee Buchanan
Treasurer: Christina Lawrence
The meeting schedule for 2020 is as follows:
January 12, 2020: Holiday Meeting (Location: Hadensville Fire Co #6) 1:00pm potluck luncheon, 2:00pm meeting/social
(March meeting is tentative at this point - working on a speaker meeting for March)
April 20, 2020: Grelen Nursery (Location: 15111 Yager Rd, Somerset, VA 22972) Plans are to go in the morning and then have lunch at the cafe afterward. Anne Hooker is to make arrangements/confirm the appointment. NOTES: The Nursery is open Mon-Fri 9am-4pm by appointment only. The cafe is open Wednesday - Sunday, and the Market is also open Wednesday-Sunday. I'm a bit lost as to why we scheduled this for Monday instead of Wednesday, Thursday or Friday... if someone could please help me out on this. I think there might have been some conflicts for later in the week, maybe? If there aren't any conflicts for a date later in the week, I'd like to change this date so that we can do the market and the cafe as well. Please respond to this email if you have a conflict later the week of April 20th but are planning to attend. (Anne will work with Grelen Nursery in early December to confirm the meeting.)

RADS is scheduled for the same day at Tena's, I believe. TENA and LOUISE, please confirm that this schedule works for you. Craig/Angie will be bringing tables to set up for the luncheon and social, and everyone should bring their own lawn chairs.
