Holiday Party 2018



"Going once, going twice, Sold to #22." Jeff Searle once again was our volunteer auctioneer for the evening and did a terrific job.


December 3, 2018 Holiday Party. A great holiday party was enjoyed by all. The party included a fantastic buffet, with some really outstanding dishes contributed by members and guests. Those board members whose terms were expiring were re-elected. A very successful silent auction was held. Then came the highlight of the night, the plant auction, with enthusiastic bidding for some of the hard to find palms. Many thanks to the various growers listed below who generously donated palms to the auction including a rare Attalea palm, dwarf betel nut palm, Licuala peltata var. sumawongii, Copernicia (various species), fairly good size sealing wax palms and Phoenicophorium borsigianum. There was something for everyone as approximately 70 donated palms found new homes.

Thanks to these generous growers: Nature's tapestry, Plant Creations, St Germain, Redland Nursery, Botanics Wholesale, Action Theory, Searle Brothers, Scott Cohen, Montgomery Botanical Garden.
