Join us for an evening of beautiful Bromeliads - including show and tell plants, the raffle, and the silent auction, Plus wonderful Bromeliad friends to visit with, and now refreshments are back!

VISITORS ARE WELCOME - come to the meeting, sign in, tell us how you found out about us and you will receive a free raffle ticket!


If members have an especially interesting plant to share they often donate an offset to our SILENT AUCTION or RAFFLE TABLE. We often have special plants for you to bid. From common and small to rare and larger plants. The funds raised help to offset the room-rental costs and club activities.


Normally we have delicious refreshments and special treats that enhance a great evening. Currently however, due to CV-19 restrictions, that is not possible. We hope that can change soon.


Buy items needed to help your plants look their best and thrive! We have pots, tags, and other special items you need.
