Golden Skep Farm
Golden Skep Farms is a nursery in Berlin Massachusetts worked by Elaine and Carl Wickstrom from their 1740 farmhouse. They grow and sell hundreds of varieties of daylilies. Their other specialties are hosta, iris and peony as well as hardy New England native perennials. Additionally, they are beekeepers and produce their own honey. Their farm is only 4 miles from Tower Hill, a little northeast of Worcester.
We will have election of officers for 2016. We will have the daylily calendars for this meeting.
After the break, Patsy will continue with information on making daylily arrangements. For this meeting, it will be a simple demonstration of the supplies or "mechanics" that are used in making most floral arrangements. A small arrangement from the demo will be raffled as a door prize

Tour Gardens of the 2015 Regional Convention hosted by the Connecticut Daylily Society
Our presenter will be Greg Hagget, a member of the Connecticut Daylily Society. Greg is on the Executive Board of CDS . He typically takes about two thousand photos of daylilies each year. He won second place in the 2013 Region 4 Photo Contest. He also has several thousand photos of the roses in Elizabeth Park and also of Nantucket.
We will have a business meeting and discuss the society's participation in the 2016 daylily show at Tower Hill. Patsy Cunningham will give a short presentation on daylily arrangments.
I'd like to ask that folks with a laptop bring it in. I'd like to make as many people as possible able to use the projector, so I need to know your outputs. We will buy adapting cords.
I hope to have a rough digital proof of the calendar for proofreading
