In 1972, we enjoyed the pleasure of your company when we held the American Rhododendron Society's annual meeting in San Francisco for the very first time.
In 1981, we will once again host the convention from April 30th through May 3rd. Our proximity to the Pacific Ocean has suggested our theme of "What Does the Pacific Basin Have To Offer A.R.S. Members?" This should offer something of interest for everyone.
Our headquarters for the conference will be the historical Palace Hotel that has been beautifully renovated to its original splendor. The location of the Sheraton-Palace on Market Street in down-town San Francisco will place you right in the heart of this most exciting city by the Golden Gate.
So please mark your 1981 calendar and plan to join us for next year's A.R.S. Conference. We promise to make it well worth your while!
President, California Chapter, A.R.S.
