Celebrating 100 years
How exciting to have members already making inquiries about the 100th Annual meeting in Philadelphia! You can reserve your room at the DoubleTree Hilton in Plymouth Meeting, PA and ask for the special WNF&GA rate of $149 per night. This includes breakfast. There are rooms with two beds, all are suites so it is easy to share the space.
The registration form will be available in the next few weeks. There are a few more details to settle before that is ready, but the final cost will be between $275 and $300. This will include all but one dinner and one lunch. There is an optional pre-meeting day on the 28th with private gardens to tour, or other self-guided tours so you may want to consider coming a day early for that.
The PA branches of Ambler Keystone and Bucks County look forward to welcoming you.
Dear Friends of WNF&GA,
In the flurry of activity, avoiding colds and flu, shoveling snow and enjoying holiday gatherings, please know that you are in our thoughts with gratitude.
Volunteers within the organization continue work toward our 100th Annual meeting May 27 to June 1. Word is that many plan to arrive to tour private gardens on May 28. Our workshops are shaping up to be an exciting hands on
The waning days of late summer are bittersweet — so sorry to lose the extra daylight and so thrilling to see the season change. We include a link in our message coming from the Wyck farmer. Wyck (www.wyck.org) is the home of Jane Bowne Haines, the fearless founder and leader of the PA School of Horticulture for Women, now the Temple Ambler campus and the birthplace for WNFGA in 1914.
