As a non member so far I have been to one meeting and loved it..haven't 
been able to get back for three years now and this year am unable to 
attend as well due to prior commitments...but wanted to ask if anyone 
from the Society travels around and gives lectures?????

If so Could someone come to Southern Maine Community College and speak 
withthe Horticultural students???Though some would be bored...I think 
the mast majority of students would be intrigued by what the 
orginization does....youn can contact the Head of the Horticultural 
Department @

meeting instigated....between work and school this time of year is just 
too hectic...lol
