We had a great fall Initiation this year at McFaddens On October 22. Lloyd Traven of Peace Tree Farms graciously accepted to be our first Jack Williams Keynote Speaker. In memory of Jack, everyone took their socks off. In Lloyd’s own words, “As I gave the Jack Williams Keynote Address at OSU last Friday in his place, I got everyone to honor Jack by taking of their socks for a picture. Jack would have LOVED this!!! I wish I could hear him laughing, but I couldn’t because I was crying. Rest in Peace, good friend. I miss you.”
I realize the site has been lacking an update! Lots has been going on with PAX since the Poinsettia Sale of last year. In fact, the planning of the 2010 sale has already begun. Since the sale, we spent time in Pittsburgh, PA for a quick weekend trip in March and Washington, DC for our annual trip in June. Both trips were wonderfully educational and fun-filled. We also participated in the spring plant sale once again in May, where we sold hand-made cacti and succulent arrangements, along with some tropicals and miniature orchids. Our fall initiation is upcoming (October 22) and we are excited to have Jack Williams as our speaker and guest once again. I am looking forward to seeing all the new and old faces this year.
See you soon!
