Thanks to all who turned out for our latest events

We had a nice turnout for our Painted Hills Road/Speedway pickup on October 21. The biggest object found was a large discarded flat screen TV. The pickup was followed by our Fall Membership Meeting and plant swap held at Painted Hills Church. Kendall Kroesen, Outreach Coordinator at Mission Garden, was our guest speaker. It was a very interesting and enlightening talk about the history of the area where Mission Garden sits at the base of "A" Mountain, aka Sentinal Peak. A big thank you to Kendall for coming to our meeting and giving a great presentation. If you've not yet visited Mission Garden, put it on your list. It's well worth the visit. And the plant swap, it was fun to discuss the different plants that were offered to be traded. Thanks to all who brought in some fun and interesting specimens!
