Jan/Feb 2012 Newsletter

Note from the President- I want to let you know that this newsletter is going to be very short and to the point and without the normal information you would find in the EMHS Newsletter.  This is all due to the fact that I am experiencing some rather serious health issues at this time and will most likely confined to home for the next 10-12 weeks.  The EMHS Board is being kept informed of my condition and will keep the membership updated as needed.  I will not be able to attend the Feb 9th meeting.
If you need to contact me personally please do so by emailing me at
Please send in your Annual Plant Sale Orders to Glen as soon as possible.
