I take this opportunity to extend a warm welcome to members of all Chapters of the A.R.S. - and foreign members, too - to join us in Vancouver, B.C. next day at the Bayshore Inn. This is your chance to visit our beautiful province, and enjoy the fellowship of people with mutual interests.
We have planned a program we feel is of national interest. Speakers will talk about Rhododendrons of the Eastern and Western areas, as well as taking a look into what is in store for us in the 1970s.
Enjoy a tour of the beauty spots of our city-view Vancouver at night from the top of Grouse Mountain-visit Vancouver Island, and the famous city of Victoria-cruise through the Gulf Islands by ferry.
I feel this will be a trip you will long remember. Looking forward to meeting you.
