The Crescent City Fuchsia and Epiphyllum Society
2021 Calendar of Events
Monthly workshops and potluck dinners will be held on the third Wednesday of each month,
and will be held at the Del Norte Co. Fairgrounds, dinning room.
Members are asked to bring a dish of their choice, to contribute to the pot luck, and their own utensils, plates, and napkins. Coffee and water are available. Each month the workshop will focus on care for your fuchsias and epiphyllums.
• Masks will be worn during the meeting or walking about the room.
• Dress warm because we need to have doors open for fresh air ventilation.
•Be prepared! It will take a little longer for everyone to receive their potluck meal, when tables are released - the right side will go first than the left side. (this is to keep the 6 ft. distancing practice in place) The servers will wear gloves and place selected foods on individual plates. Any questions – please contact Delfie at 707 954-8882.
January - No events scheduled due to Covid restrictions.
February- No events scheduled due to Covid restrictions.
