Hi Chris, Looking forward to the JBS meeting this summer.

2 questions:

Do he want any NH sites for Dir pal? And what does collecting mean?  Listing 
and documenting or actually taking plant material?  The site I know is very 
small and in a state park.

Also, when in the schedule is the book sale? How will it be run? I have 
books and certainly don't want to miss it but have scheduled a loosestrife 
removal day in my town on Friday am and was originally thinking about 
leaving after dinner. Since I'm close, I could leave after the book sale 
:-), maybe .

Thanks Deb
