High Dive Pavilion
Registration for lunch is required, see below
The Elkhart Dahlia Society (EDS) hosts the annual meeting due to our geographic advantage. It makes for a long drive from Minnesota or Pennsylvania, but Michigan, Ohio,
and Illinois growers can't complain.
This year we are planning to be back at High Dive Pavilion, 500 East Beardsley Ave., Elkhart, IN. This is where we always held the meeting pre-pandemic. The date is the first Saturday of June, this year that means the 4th. Plan to get there by 8:30 am. It takes a while to sort out plants for the auction, but by 10 am there is usually a brief meeting with a guest speaker. By 11 am people are getting hungry and we usually eat by 11:30 am, followed by the auction of plants, generally the highlight of the day. Proceeds always benefit the host of the fall dahlia show, and this year that is also EDS.
Hopefully Jim and Tony will keep tradition and help run the auction.
Box lunches will be served, with ice cream sundaes for dessert. Midwest Dahlia Conference (MDC)
has held the price for this event at $15 per person. Pre-registration is needed, as we want you to get the box you want, either beef, turkey, or ham sandwich, or a vegetarian option. The box will also have chips, salad, and cookie.
Please send your preference and payment, US Post, to Anita Ritchie. Find her address in Members Info/Society Leadership. Checks should be made out to 'EDS'.
See ya there!
