Good Morning, Presidents and Corresponding Secretaries of area clubs,
Attached is a flier for an event the Rivanna Garden Club is hosting on February 11th (snow date February 18th), at the Dickenson Theater of the Piedmont Community College campus, (Exit 121 on I-64). The film is based on the work of Doug Tallemy and we are hoping to fill the theater with interested people. Please let your club members, Homeowner Associations, etc. know of the event.
