Plants For Members Program -- Fall 2007 MAC Chapter meeting

The Chapter's Plants for Members program (P4M) objective is to provide uncommon, unusual or hard-to-find Rhododendrons to the Chapter membership on a financial break-even basis. Plants are distributed at each Fall's chapter membership meeting. Members are allowed into the plant sale room in the order in which their meeting registration was received. Each member in attendance is allowed to select at least 3 plants on the first rotation.
