Daylilies and More! Region 11 Summer Meeting – June 28th-29th, 2019 Springfield, MO
June 28 - June 29
We hope you will take part in Region 11’s first 1-day tour Regional. It is also the first joint planned Regional; Region 11 officers took the reins to take on the responsibility of planning the event. The local club took on the local assignments. Region 11 has wanted a Summer Regional in Springfield for some time. Unfortunately, the Ozark Daylily Society doesn’t have the membership to handle a Regional on their own. The desire was there but had an aging membership and many of the gardens of their club members are small. Springfield and the surrounding area is great destination for weddings, honeymoons and vacations — so much to do. You will want to include extra days to visit: Johnny Morris has built the #1 wildlife museum and aquarium at the Bass Pro store in Springfield, Branson has plenty of shows and don’t forget Silver Dollar City, Golfing opportunity at Top of the Rock and fishing at Table Rock Lake, the beautiful Springfield Botanical Gardens and so much more. The Guest speaker is Rich Howard. Rich owns and operates CT Daylily a two-acre property in Wallingford in South Central Connecticut.
A Great Time is being planned for you!! Register early!! The first 50 will be entered in a very special drawing hybridized by our guest speaker.
Friday night: If you arrive early, go and visit the 10 daylily beds that the local club maintains for the Botanical Gardens. After you have registered for the regional at the hotel and have attended any meetings you need to attend, meet us over at the Botanical Gardens Meeting Space. There’s entertainment!! We’re Not Dead Yet, who play country, rock and roll and gospel, will play for us—practice your line dancing!! These guys are friends of Sue Calbreath. A Taco Bar, a drink bar and the daylily auction will happen here too!
Saturday, you will have breakfast at the hotel. Then jump on the bus for the daylily tour. The buses will bring us back to the Japanese Pavilion where lunch will be provided. You will have a ticket to tour the Japanese Gardens. Golf carts will be available to take those with walking issues to the daylily beds where you will vote for the best seedling.
Back to the hotel, last chance for the bag auction which will close at 6pm. Join your friends for the open bar social hour and banquet. Rich will speak at the banquet.
