Lunch Arrangements

"Bulbs in the Garden" is the first lecture in a two lecture series. Following the first talk and the plant auction, there will be a break for lunch after 11:30 AM. Because of the short break, we are encouraging people to either bring a bag lunch or to take advantage of box lunches that can be ordered ahead of time. Two sandwich options are available: chicken salad or a vegetable medley with Swiss cheese. Both include two sides, a cookie, and iced tea. Please note neither option is vegan or gluten free. Please indicate your selection in an e-mail to Charlie Kidder, Piedmont Chapter chair at by October 27.
