:: PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE ::


Hello Rare Fruit Hunters!


Thank the lord for our cold snaps this year! Without them we wouldn't be seeing our Mango trees blooming. In case you missed it, we had Alex Salazar from Tropical Acres do a talk last week. We have and exciting line up of speakers in the coming months. Stay tuned!


Thank you to all the members who made it out to the fairgrounds! We had a good time talking to new people, sharing information, and reconnecting with current members. Overall, it was a success and I'm confident that we inspired people to grow fruit trees in their backyards and sign up to the club.


Our next meeting will be February 10!


See you there!

Ben
