August Meeting

The Lane County Dahlia Society will hold its August meeting Thursday, August 4th at 7:30 PM at the Celeste Campbell Center, 155 High Street, Eugene. This month's meeting will focus on how to enter a bloom in a dahlia show and how to exhibit at the Fair. We will discuss how to improve bloom quality on your plants, how to transport blooms safely to a show, and demonstrate how to stage a 1-bloom and 3-bloom exhibit. We will also have an informal dahlia "show-and-tell" as members bring in blooms to share. The meeting is free and open to the public. Free refreshments will be provided. We look forward to seeing you there!

July Potluck

Last Thursday evening, members of the Lane County Dahlia Society gathered for the annual members & friends potluck. As usual, the tables were soon groaning under a delicious assortment of salads, main dishes and deserts.

Besides the opportunity of sampling so many wonderful dishes, this fun evening gives members the chance to talk and really get to know one another. Of coarse dahlias were the number one topic of the night!

Thanks to all of the LCDS members and guests who brought dishes and friendship to share.
