Thanks Johnny C for the great pitch for our Fall meeting:
The Fall 2011 meeting of the Southeastern Palm Society will be held at the beautiful Magnolia Plantation and Gardens in Charleston, South Carolina on October 15, 2011. Founded in 1676 by the Drayton family, Magnolia Plantation has survived the centuries and witnessed the history of our nation unfold before it from the American Revolution through the Civil War and beyond. It is the oldest public tourist site in the Low country, and the oldest public gardens in America, opening its doors to visitors in 1870 to view the thousands of beautiful flowers and plants in its famous gardens.
