CFPACS has been running a little low right now, but I've volunteered to run the club. I'm not the best organizer but am looking for a stronger year in 2012. We put out one newsletter in July and putting another out this Month.

I would like to use the Dec.10th meeting to get better organized and plan out 2012 with dates with meetings/tours/sales.

Our next meeting will be Dec.10th. Two gardens in Brevard County. Neil Y. in the morning and then mine in the afternoon. More details to follow.

You can contact me through my email address. I'll post more later.

David,

I wish you good luck with this!

We were trying to get a nominating committee for one of the orchid societies I belong to. No on would even volunteer for that! I gave them a pretty harsh talking to at the last meeting. I told them if they wanted a club next year, someone better step up to the plate. No officers, no meetings. I told them all they wanted to do was show up and have refreshments. We did get a committee but not sure if we have any volunteers for officers. And the biggest complainers are the ones who won't do anything.

Thanks for the encouragement! Trust me, I need it!


Thankfully CFPACS has a pretty good group of core members that want to see it succeed. We have put out one newsletter for 2011 and the 2nd one is coming out in the next couple weeks. We are shy of what we want to do, but are ramping up for a stronger 2012.


Put Dec.10th, 2011 down on your calender. Thanks.

For those who have not been to Brevard County in awhile there is a new exit off of I-95 that avoids the other exit's traffic and is much quicker than the others. it is exit 188, 404 Pineda Extension.



It is South of Wickham Road exit, and North of Eau Gallie Boulevard. You will definitely want to seek this exit out as it will save you around 5 or ten minutes of driving time.


I think the exit signs say Satellite Beach exit. Take the 404 all the way to the Ocean and it dead ends into A1A. To get to Neil's place take a right (South) on A1A and travel a few miles past Satellite Beach and into Indian Harbor beach. From there use your favorite mapper to get to Neil's. He is off of PInetree where Lowes is at right on A1A. To get to my house after Neil's, the recommended route is to take Mather's bridge and South Tropical Trail (SR-3) and about 7 miles to my place. I'm not a detail oriented person so the rest is up to you! Or, email me if what I just typed is too confusing. damy5@Juno.com



You can also google cfpacs and find its facebook page. Both Neil and I are looking forward to this meeting. I think everyone will be really impressed with Neil's yard. For my yard, I got the annual rye grass kicking. So come over and watch the grass grow! LOL...

phil Stager. Ray hernandez and my self will be in attendence, so glad to hear of the rebirth and will be good to see others, we have done a ton of work and new installations at GKPA the last 1 1/2 years. so things are looking good and exciting things coming up in 2012, St Pete Parks and Recreation Department, is beginning an entire rewroking of the Parks website and with that we will be able to get a much more comprehensive area on it for GKPA.
we are also starting to work on getting QR codes on signage there, new maps are done and up.
Sorry i have been way remiss in updating but been swamped with work and Life, so hopefully in 2012 i'll do better at keeping everyone up to date, I intend to renew at the meeting. Congratulations Dave Reid and many thanks for stepping up. look forward to meeting you

Sorry you missed it. It was a great turn out. Around 40 people and about 100 palms left home to new owners!

Thanks Eric for all the donations. That was an amazing collection and I bought ton of them and have some new screw pines and others to check out.


Also, thanks for everyone for making the long drive. This club has a long stretch from the Gulf Coast to the Atlantic. Hopefully everyone left happy.

Catherine, the pics are of the 2011 December meeting. There is no December meeting scheduled this year, so you have not missed anything. We had a great March meeting in St. Pete - Kopsick and Mike and Marjorie Evans' garden. That was our only meeting for 2012.

CFPACS is currently looking for a new president, treasurer, newsletter editor and webmaster, if anyone is interested in volunteering. Hopefully we can get some new leadership and put together a full meeting schedule for 2013.

Thanks, Ray. The board is discussing future plans for CFPACS and things are looking very hopeful. We are still going to need everyone to pitch in to sign up members and get a full meeting schedule for 2013, among other things. We hope to have an announcement by Christmas.
