January 9th 2023 update:
Pacific Northwest Peony Society Members!
Happy New Year!
We are pleased to announce the return of the Society's Annual Winter Meeting. It's been a while coming, but with the post pandemic return to more normal times we are anxious to resume this annual social and professional gathering to network, share, learn and discuss all things PEONY.
The membership meeting of Old & New business
will include the election of officers and directors and scheduling of future meetings and activities. We are currently putting together the business meeting agenda as well as the educational programs with Paeonia guest speakers. Finally, concluding Saturday's meeting, luncheon, and programs, we will once again hold our popular PNPS Auction!
Join us Saturday February 25th, 2023,
at the Wilsonville, Oregon Holiday Inn
25425 SW 95th Ave. Wilsonville, OR 97070
9:00am to 5:00pm.
▪️Please note: Although the expenses for conference venue and food services are projected to be $120 -$130/attendee, the Society is subsidizing all but the $35 conference registration fee. We hope this further induces you to join us! Also, in acknowledgment of the earlier suspension of meetings and activities during the pandemic we will be crediting dues payments already made to the forthcoming year. More details at the meeting. We're always eager to build the membership and we hope this will encourage your own attendance and that of any guests you may bring.
▪️The hotel, "Holiday Inn Portland South" 503 682-2211, (actually 20 miles south of Portland, at the I-5 Wilsonville Exit 286), is holding a room block for us. Members staying at the hotel will need to mention the "Pacific Northwest Peony Society" when making their reservations on or before January 25th.
▪️You are invited to join us the preceding evening (6:00pm Friday, 2/24/23) in the hotel's "BooneTown" restaurant for a no host dinner and socializing. Please advise us by February 10th to help us reserve enough seating.
