Calendar of Events – 2021
The National Capital Dahlia Society has not disappeared. We were victims of technology and COVID depression. Our website company changed its log-in procedures and totally stymied this writer who has more experience with flowers than with computers. I have enlisted some help and hope to be more current.
We are still conducting meetings with Zoom. To participate, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will make sure you get a link.
