Upcoming Presentations and meetings

The next monthly meeting of the Eureka Chapter is Thursday, September 22, 2022.

We do not yet know if we will have the meeting in person or via Zoom. It will be one or the other. It won’t be both as we tried in April and learned is not feasible at our venue. We will let our mail list members know as soon as we determine the locale. Please sign up for our emails if you are not yet on our mail list. Sign up here.

     To attend the meeting in person: Join us at the Eureka Woman’s Club,  1531 J Street in Eureka beginning at 7 p.m. Masks are optional. Bring your own refreshment as we won’t be serving any this month. We will have a few plants available for a raffle and Don will share about them as he has at past meetings.
     To join the Zoom meeting:  Click on the big red button below by 7 pm to assure we get everyone in before the presentation begins.  Please expect the presentation to begin shortly after 7 pm as we get the live meeting settled in and the video queued up.  We thank you in advance for your patience.
