Treasurer’s report Ann I stated that our bank balance is $8,306.28.
Quilt Raffle Ticket Sales Bobbi encouraged members to keep selling raffle tickets. We may take the quilt to our various organizations and let people see the quilt (It sells itself). She has a calendar and asked that we contact her if we want to borrow the quilt to sell tickets.
Kingston Citizens Advisory Board - Mary Ann reported that the minutes are in the Community News for all to read. She does report to them what KGC is doing.
Johnny (non member) reported that the sign by the Camperdown Elm tree behind the Village Green is in very bad shape and should be removed. It evidently suggests that KGC is maintaining the area. Ann W agreed to have the sign removed.
(Wendy saved the day, by getting a computer and projector for our speaker as we were not able to access the church’s)
Catherine introduced the Speaker, Heidi Kasters. Heidi attended PLU from 1983-88. In 1988 she and her husband started Dragon Fly Nursery. She gave a wonderful presentation showing us a variety of plants, shrubs and trees.

Sue announced that there will be a potting party today after the meeting. She also asked members to check page 13 of the directory for all the Potting Party dates.
She showed us the Garden Sale Poster. It will be distributed to various businesses around April 1st.
She thanked all those who have helped already and gave everyone who had a plant sale voucher.
She also stated that all plants should be at her house to be tagged and labeled.
Carol said that the decaf coffee pot is new and that you need to push your cup “in” to dispense the coffee. Do not lift the tab.
