The Iowa Regional Lily Society is really the most active society near here. I think Northstar in Minnesota is pretty active too. Both have fall and spring events and sales and Iowa has their own lily show, if I recall correctly, as well as garden
tours.

I belong to Iowa Regional Lily Society.

Tracey, and others, I am wanting to contact people in the Wisconsin society, throw some ideas their way, to help get more activity, along with membership numbers up while attempting to encourage younger people to get into gardening in general. If there is anything i can do, would people be willing to join the society then?

I just see how good the North Star Society along with the Canadian ones seem to be doing. And with Wisconsin and Illinois teamed up, I don't see why our more local society couldn't equal them. Especially after having the NALS show in Chicago. It seems like a waste to have such a great tool for people to use but not take advantage of. Especially with people like Lorn, Tracey, Dr.Griesbach, JMorth, and so many other people that are knowledgeable and experienced right in the boundaries of the society
