CFPACS Board is currently considering a morning stop over at Flamingo Gardens then on to a cycad nursery that will be opening up just for us that day. Details on Sunday to follow.
CFPACS does not have a host hotel but as there appears to be some big events happening in the area around that time, we suggest you find a place to stay sooner rather than later!

Central & North Florida Palm and Cycad Society
Saturday, December 8, 2018
11:00am – 3:00pm
Private Garden of Ron Hart & Maryann Krisovitch
6701 Lake Kirkland Drive, Clermont, FL 34714
The Society will provide drinks and the main dish. Please bring a side or dessert to share.
About the garden: Ron & Maryann have been members of the society for over 10 years and have also served as President and Treasurer. They recently moved about 80 of their 170 palms and cycads from their home in Apopka to their new lake house south of Clermont. While the home is a new place for Maryann, Ron actually built the home 15 years ago. Many of the palms he planted back then are still there and thriving even though he was gone from them for the past 10 years! You’ll see the struggle the plants are facing since removing plucked from a shady oak canopy half-acre yard to a mostly sunny acre on the lake.
Please R.S.V.P. by the Monday before the meeting to Maryann at email@example.com
What you need to bring to the meeting:
A plant for the auction (does not have to be a palm, palm-companions are good too!
Sides or dessert
A chair for your own personal enjoyment!
