The next meeting of the Mid Island Dahlia Society
will be on the second Monday in
September due to Labor Day on 9/4. The
meeting will be held on September 11, 2017,
at 7:30 pm, in Winthrop Hall, Church of the
Advent, 555 Advent Street, Westbury, NY
Our President, Tom
Cleere, has requested that all members make every
effort to attend this meeting. Our show at
Planting Fields will take place on 9/16 and 9/17
and we will need to coordinate all functions,
volunteers and responsibilities. If you have never
exhibited before or have done so sparingly over
the past years, please be advised that the Novice
section has been greatly expanded to allow for
more entries. We need as many blooms as possible.
It is suggested that new participants plan to
stage their blooms on the evening of Friday,
September 15, as it is a more relaxed atmosphere
and experienced help is available. All aspects of
the show and displaying your blooms will be
discussed at the meeting.
The meeting is open
to the public. Free refreshments. Go to www.midislanddahlia.org
or contact President Tom Cleere at 631-838-7370.
Yes, you can grow beautiful
dahlias. We’ll teach you how.
During each meeting, an experienced
dahlia grower from our club or a guest speaker
from another club will give a presentation on a
variety of different topics. This presentation
usually follows a general business meeting. At
each presentation, the presenter usually discusses
whatever is relevant to dahlia growing during that
