FROM THE VICE-PRESIDENT
We all hope that Jack Frost and his friends are gone for the next many months and Mother Nature brings sun and warmth and gentle breezes as our ponds and plants come to life again. It’s the month when CAOAC takes a look at where we’ve been and where we hope to go in the coming year. Our hobbyists take a proud look at their achievements and celebrate their success, or make plans to start over with new stock.
