Our November dahlia meeting will be held Thursday, November 5th at 7:30 PM. The topic of this meeting will be the proper digging, dividing, and storage of dahlia tubers. Society members will be set up at many work stations, giving hands-on demonstrations of tuber dividing. This is one of our most popular meetings of the year and we expect a large turnout. As always, the meeting is free and open to the public.

The weekend of September 19th-20th, the Lane County Dahlia Society held its 46th Annual Dahlia Show. This year our venue moved to the Wheeler Pavillion at the Lane Events Center. This space proved to be a wonderful place to hold a show.
The room was full of beautiful dahlia blooms. It was literally a sea of color and our many visitors were awe-struck!
