The Alfred D. Robinson Branch was chartered in 1942. In recent years, the membership shrank, aged and soon was not meeting regularly. We are looking to renew the group and make it vibrant once again. With a limited audience for membership, we need to make the members of San Diego's other two American Begonia Society branches want to come and entice those that don't belong to them come. To do this we will meet at the KOLZ Begonia Research Center in San Diego for those that don't wish to drive to the north county. We will encourage all members to participate in the programs and will look at 'heritage begonias'. These would be hybrids that are over 25 years old.
This year we are going to meet on the FIFTH Saturday of the month, this is almost quarterly. Those dates are March 29, May 31, August 30 and November 29, 2014.
For more information contact Michael Ludwig or 619-262-7535 or 6040 Upland St., San Diego CA 92114. Hope to see you at our meetings.
