So dry and hot. Records we would all prefer were not broken and reset. The January meeting had a fabulous display of Platyceriums and Pyrrosia. Our guest speaker Graham Rees from Kangaroo Island Gourmet Foods was so passionate about Kangaroo Island, its history and geography, that I am sure we could have happily listened to him for much longer. Lots of goodies were purchased by members and I am sure the shop at Port Adelaide will be frequented in the future by many.
The next meeting being the AGM on Friday February 22nd is very important for all members to attend to ensure the Fern Society continues and prospers and meets the needs of all. Nomination forms were sent out with the January newsletter mailout and some have been received with nominations completed. More are needed. If there are nominations received for the positions and there is no need for an election the positions will be declared as elected unopposed, with no voting required.
Five new Life Memberships will be awarded at the AGM and years of service will be recognised for 10, 20 and 30 years. It is hoped that we have a full house on the night to acknowledge and recognise these awards.
The night will start at 7pm with a presentation by Brad Mayger from Queensland, followed by the AGM and then the regular February meeting.
Hope to see lots of people there on 22/2/19 at 7pm. (and with any luck we will have had some rain before then!!!)
