If you have not received the message – please check e-mail filters! – contact Susan Carpentier ( or Ralph Olliges ( to request the information.

The program for the meeting will be “Remote Show & Tell.” With no show this year, this is an opportunity to share some of the plants you would have entered.

To facilitate order in the content, please contact Dave Janas (, Olliges or Carpentier in advance of the meeting If you would like to get on the list to show video or photos, and talk about your plants or summer growing setup.

Remote Viewing Etiquette


1. Please toggle audio and video OFF while watching to preserve bandwidth integrity.

2. When showing plant video, try to use strong front light and control camera shake, which causes images to pixelate. Use “Share Screen” to show picture files on your computer. This is not for video.

3. Use “Chat” to ask questions.

The program starts at 2:00 p.m., but Susan Carpentier will be on the Zoom meeting at 1:00 p.m. If you need help with Zoom, please call Carpentier at 314-409-1897 before the meeting day.
