Time to Pay Dues
Hello to all dahlia growers. We have all heard the saying that hindsight is 20 20 and I guess most will agree with me and are glad that the year 2020 is behind us and looking forward to a better 2021. We hope to reach some degree of normalcy soon and start having meetings and hopefully a show this year.
Having said that I would like to remind those that are interested in joining for 2021 that it is time to pay dues. Same as the past few years.
