Don’t forget – our nominating committee will present a slate of officers at this meeting.  Please raise your hand and offer to volunteer for an office, or to be an assistant to an officer or to work on any committee.  This is the best way to enhance our chapter as well as your Ikebana experience in “Friendship through Flowers”.  Our new board needs to have all the positions filled before the end of the season.

Last year we were nearly sold out for our luncheon at the end of our February meeting.  If you are still interested in attending, contact Sudie Minamyer to see if you can still make a reservation.  Here is the  registration form for the March 13 luncheon.


We meet at the Naples Botanical Garden in the Buehler Auditorium in the FGCU Research Center from 9:30-11:30AM.  Our programs start with a small social period followed by a short business meeting and then our monthly program which often incorporates a workshop open to anyone who makes a prior reservation to take the workshop.
