Gallery Show - The club will be participating in the Alamo Danville Artists' Society Gallery Show during the months of June and July. We will display three trees each weekend (Fri - Sun) from June 9th until August 1st. If you have trees that can be displayed during the show, please bring them to the June 8th meeting. 'K' must approve each tree that is to be shown.  We will also need club members to staff the exhibit as much of the time trees are on display as is possible. If you know when you might be available to staff the exhibit, we can begin to draw up a schedule at the June meeting.
