This is a fun event and we encourage everyone to take part. Life and Yankee swaps are like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get!

We are happy to announce that  Emmi Kurosawa has been elected to serve as our new Vice President.

November Meeting Roundup - Nov 09, 2014 by Webmaster
At the November meeting members were presented  with not one, but two carnivorous plant presentations. Jeff Matteson gave an informative presentaion on caring for and propagating Cephalotus follicularis which was then followed by a helpful presentation on preparing plants for dormancy given by John Lombardi.

Members were surprised to each receive one of several dozen Cephalotus follicularis "Hummers Giant" cuttings that were provided courtesy of Jeff.

As was often said by NECPS Founder John Phillip Jr. -

"Membership has it's privileges!"
