I would like to invite PBS and list members living in the Portland, 
Oregon area to the annual pot show of the Columbia-Willamette chapter 
of NARGS, which will take place at 7 pm on Tuesday evening, March 20, 
at the SMILE Center, 8210 S.E. 13th Ave., Portland. This meeting hall 
is one block south of the intersection of SE 13th Avenue and Tacoma 
Street in the Sellwood neighborhood and can be easily reached from 
Highway 43 via the Sellwood Bridge or by Highway 99E (McLoughlin 
Blvd) via Tacoma Street west. This is a non-competitive show and 
always features a lot of bulbs. Several knowledgeable members will 
discuss the different groups of plants shown. Admission is free to 
all, and non-members are welcome to bring plants in containers to add 
to the display. Refreshments and door prizes will be available too!

If you would like to bring plants, please clean the outside of the 
pots and supply a clearly legible label on card stock or something 
similar so that people can read the plant's identity without pulling 
your permanent label.

On April 17 the NARGS chapter will host Austrian plantsman Fritz 
Kummert at the same venue. He grows many kinds of plants but has a 
special interest in geophytes, notably Juno irises. Again, 
non-members are welcome to attend. We will also have surplus seed 
packets from the NARGS seed exchange to distribute to NARGS members 
free, and to non-members for a small cost.

If you have any questions, please write to me directly, not to the forum,

Best regards,
Jane McGary
President, Columbia-Willamette Chapter
