June 2015 News
Just like last year, the June meeting has been moved back one week to Saturday, June 13. We will take a trip to St. Louis to visit the fish room of CAFE friend, master fish breeder, plant grower, and author Mike Hellweg. This should be an amazing trip!
Meet Saturday, June 13, 2015, meet at 1125 Plant Sciences Laboratory, 1201 S. Dorner Drive Urbana, IL 61801 at 8:30 a.m to carpool to St. Louis. We will depart at 8:30, so please get there a few minutes early. We will stop for lunch and should arrive at Mike’s home about 1:00 p.m.
If you live closer to St. Louis than the rest of us and prefer not to drive out of your way to carpool, contact Carie or Susan for directions.
2015 July Auction
The July 11 Auction is nearly here. Be sure to be thinking about what you'd like to sell and buy. It will be held at the Urbana Civic Center, the same location as years past. All the information you need for the auction is on the Auction Information page.
Sellers, please be aware that our auction rules have changed. Seller's are no longer paid on site at the auction and must pay for purchases prior to leaving the auction. Our treasurer will do her best to get checks out in the mail to you within 1 week of the auction. Please contact us if you do not receive a check in the mail within 2 weeks of the auction.
Sellers, please use our label maker and seller's sheets. It's a piece of cake; only a web browser and PDF reader are needed. Just click on the link, type in your information, print everything on blank sheets of paper, cut out and tape your labels to your bags, then bring your items and seller's sheets to the auction. Labels are sized to be attached with packing tape.
See you at the auction!
