CALL FOR PROGRAM IDEAS!

We will soon be putting together the 2012-2013 Canandaigua Botanical Society Program. Your ideas and interests are requested. Is there a program you are interested in, something you would like to know more about, a repeat of a past favorite botanical event? Do you know of possible presenters or field trip leaders? Let us know! Peggy Kane and Laura Ouimette (and anyone else interested in helping put together program ideas) will be working these next couple of months to have a printed program guide ready for the April 20th potluck dinner. You can contact Laura or Peggy by phone (check the 2011-2012 program for our phone numbers) or Email CanandaiguaBotanical@gmail.com.

***Please consider family friendly programs too***
