August 15 Annual Picnic and Member-Only Plant Sale

From Donna Kraft, vice-chair/program:

Plans are set for this year’s member picnic and plant sale to be held on Saturday, August 15th at Kenneth Post Lab, Cornell University, Ithaca. ACNARGS will provide a light lunch for those who RSVP by August 7 to Donna Kraft at 315 696-8626 or

The schedule:
  • 10:00 a.m. Arrive promptly, get your plant sale number, help with sale set-up & pricing.
  • 11:00 a.m. Plant sale begins. Buy, buy, and buy some more.
  • 12:00 noon-ish Picnic lunch on the Knoll at Cornell Plantations if weather is good or stay at KPL if conditions dictate.
  • 1:30-ish p.m. Enjoy Cornell Plantations.
As in past years, we'll very democratically allow those who arrive first to get "first dibs" at purchases. So it pays to arrive early. For the treasured and special plants, we will have a silent auction table. Note: this is our one members-only sale and we should have some real horticultural gems. Please label your plant contributions in advance to speed things up.

Not yet a member? We welcome you to join for 2009 at this meeting for $10 ($15 for families). It's still a great value since we have half of our program year ahead of us.

As soon as we finish the plant sale, respondents will enjoy sandwiches, wraps, salads, and dessert provided by our chapter! Socialize and then enjoy Cornell Plantations.

Don't forget to RSVP by August 7.
