HOTOS July 5, 2016 Meeting Canceled
Our July meeting is usually a pool and potluck event, but given the date so close to the July 4th holiday, members at the June meeting voted to forgo the July meeting and meet again at our August 2nd meeting date. Also, given the Austin rush hour traffic, we have decided to begin our meetings at 7:15p instead of 6:45p to help folks get to the garden center. We still have the meeting room from 6:30p so you are welcome to arrive early and have some social time with members. See you at the August meeting!
Please join us at our next meeting Tuesday, August 2, 2016 at 7:15 pm at Zilker Botanical Garden Center 2220 Barton Springs Rd, Austin, TX 78746 Hope to see you there!
