Alaska Pioneer Fruit Growers Association

NEXT MEETING: February 15th (date change)

January 15, 2018

You are cordially invited to our February general membership meeting on Thursday, February 15, at 6:30 pm in the BP Energy Center.

Please note the change of date from our usual meeting day.  It was decided at the January membership meeting to change the meeting date to accommodate our presenter, Scott Lammers. Scott is the son of the famous Fairbanks orchard pioneer, Claire Lammers.  Scott will present an overview of the current status of the Lammers orchard, and take questions on growing fruit in Fairbanks.

We will also have a visit from a beekeeper.  She will talk briefly about what is involved in hosting a hive and is looking for two locations to place hives this summer.

At the meeting, we will have permanent metal plant tags and parafilm grafting tape for sale.  The tags are 10 for $2, and the parafilm tape is 8 feet for $1.  Bring dollar bills if you are interested in these items.

At 6:30 pm there will be refreshments and the opportunity to talk and socialize with other members before the meeting is called to order at 7:00 pm.  Feel free to bring any cookies or light refreshments that you might like to share.
