"Plant Dreams - Pull Weeds - and grow a Happy Life"

As of the March 9th meeting, we have decided to meet on the second Tuesday of each month.

AND.....we will no longer be meeting at the Sonora Senior Center.

Starting next month, we will be meeting at 11:00 a.m. at JEB'S RESTAURANT in Sonora.

Tuesday, May 9th is the Valley Lode District meeting in Turlock.

Tuesday, June 13th - we will have our meeting at Jeb's and we will be inviting our State Poster Contest winners to join us.

If it seems necessary to change these dates again, I will let you know as soon as I can.  Thank you for being so patient while we get our time and place settled.

The Club Flower
IRIS - 'Iris' is the Greek word for Rainbow.  It is a flower of many varieties and colors and its popularity is attributed to its distinctive shape.  They grow in temperate regions all over the world.  The Iris is recorded in history as far back as 1500 B.C. by being carved on the brow of the Great Sphinx of Egypt.
