Great news!!! This is to announce that the programs for the 2015 Combined Spring National Convention and National Miniature Conference are currently available.

There is a chance programs will be available at the Buckeye District Spring Meeting (registrations due by March 20th and are coming in a little slow) in hardcover form, but if not or if you’d like to have earlier they can be accessed by one of two ways.
You can go directly to the Convention and Conference web site

I’d like to express my thanks to Steve Campbell for all the work in putting this program together. The collaboration to tie down all of the loose ends is significant and as you’ll see Steve did his usually tremendous job in completing the program!!
Hope everyone is surviving the winter. February was a pretty rough month weather wise and similar to last years tough winter. I guess we can count our blessings if it only lasts a month. Average high temperatures for this time of year are around 40 degrees. Can’t come soon enough!!!
Our own Patti Jacko will discuss where to buy roses both Online and locally. There have been lots of changes and she’s here to give you the scoop. This will be a hard copy presentation with handouts so note taking will be easier for everyone. Please bring a guest. All are welcome, refreshments served.
