2020-2021 Meeting Schedule

(note: due to scheduling conflicts with the Garden Club, some meetings may NOT be on the 3rd Sunday of the month. Please follow the schedule below for ALL meetings!)

Please be advised that we will be following all social distancing guidelines and wearing a mask is mandatory. We will not be handing out name tag as we usually do so please come with a stick on name tag or you can write your name on your mask. If you forget a stick on name tag, one will be provided.

If you still have apprehensions about meeting in person we will be doing a Facebook Live session on the Heart of Jacksonville African Violet Society Facebook page so you can follow along at home. We will try to continue this until everyone feels more confident about attending in person.
Hope you can attend either in person or on line!

If you have not paid your dues on line there will be a table at the front door for renewing your membership. You can also go to the “Members Only”  and renew using PayPal.

September 20, 2020 – Our first meeting will be virtual. It has not been decided what format will be used yet. All members will be emailed in advance on how to participate.
Remember, you will need your badge

The talk will be on quarantining your plants followed by a “Stump the Panel” question and answer session. So bring your plant questions and try to stump our 3 member panel.
We will follow with a plant raffle that will be spread out for social distancing.
