Once again PSST members arrived at our guest's house around the noon hour. Many members came from long distances to see Romeo's garden. Jim Wier taking the honors for the farthest drive coming in from Odessa. We also had members from San Antonio as well from cities along the coast. As members arrived, they socialized and of course toured the grounds, marveling at Romeo's collection of palms and plants. Romeo had lunch catered in and everyone enjoyed being catered to. The food was fabulous and everyone got their fill. After eating, we gathered around to have quick meeting. After the quick meeting we started in on the auction that everyone was waiting for. The sun was hot but the bidding was even hotter on the items being auctioned. When all was said and done, the society netted a tidy sum thanks to the generosity of our members. It's auctions like this that allow us to fund worthwhile projects as well as keep membership down. After the meeting concluded many members stuck around to socialize a bit more and taken in a little more of the gardens. Romeo conducted another tour for those who didn't attend the earlier one. Below you will find pictures of the gardens as well as our members enjoying the meeting. Do enjoy.
