I think because it is on the way to Dave's place.

That makes sense then. :greenthumb:

I was going to suggest somewhere closer to Sugar Mill Gardens if you guys weren't going to NSB anyway. I won't be attending, but hope you guys have a good time.

The lunch spot is on the beachside about a mile from his house.

I'm looking forward to the trip.  It will be the first time I've been at Dave's place in NSB.

During the first stop of our day, we donated a Bismarckia nobilis to Sugar Mill Gardens.  You can see our president, Dave Hall, standing with one of our tour guides for the day before they place the donated palm in the ground:

After our lunch break, it was off to Dave's place on the waterfront at New Smyrna Beach.  The next three pictures are the palms and other plants that greet you when you make your way down the driveway.

      Central & North Florida Palm and Cycad Society
      Holiday Gathering

      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 palmsocietytreas@aol.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!
