members toured the garden while visiting with one another. As it turned out we had a few members that called in to let us know they were running
late due to traffic issues, so it was decided upon to delay the luncheon by 30 minutes to let the others arrive. Around 1pm lunch was served with
brisket, BBQ beans, salads and all the various other side dishes & desserts that were brought to the meeting. After everyone had their fill, it
was time for a society meeting. During the meeting a treasury report was read, along with future expenses. Additionally we spoke about needing
articles for the bulletin and members were highly encouraged to write up there experiences with this years unusual weather!

Our next meeting will be in Brownsville on 12 Nov 11. Look forward to seeing you at one of the up coming meetings.
