SAH-WAH-BE CHAPTER NEWS AND UPCOMING EVENTS

February 4, 2008
Our next first-Monday-of-the month meeting will feature Robert Pittman, local botanist and tree specialist, who will discuss landscaping our yards and gardens with native trees, shrubs, and plants. Robert is employed by Town and Country Gardens in Pocatello and thus is aware of availability of native plants there and what will flourish in our area. Join us in the Idaho Museum of Natural History (IMNH) classroom on the ISU campus for this informative meeting, 7:00 pm.

This month’s meeting will be the annual showing of members’ photos and memories from past years’ trips. All forms of media will be available in the IMNH classroom for anyone who wishes to use them. Informal as the presentations may be, they are always enjoyable and all are encouraged to participate! Contact Barbara Nicholls if you have questions.

Our Sah-Wah-Be chapter annual planning and election meeting will be at The Mandarin House, 675 Yellowstone Ave., Pocatello, and will commence at 6:00 pm for those who wish to order dinner, and 7:00 pm for the meeting. A nominating committee chaired by Cathy Frischmann is currently seeking nominees for the elective offices. Please contact her to volunteer or to offer suggestions. By-Law updates and chapter policy clarifications will be discussed. An important part of the meeting will be members’ suggestions for and planning of field trip dates and locations for 2008. Contact President Janet Bala for more information (208-235-1352).
