Having recently joined a Daylily Society in my area, I'm trying to help grow the club and get new members. We meet on Sunday afternoon at a central location, put on informative programs and have fabulous refreshments. I can only assume that people just don't know we're here. We've lined up a national hybridizer to give a program and auction at our February meeting and really want it to be successful. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is your club listed with the AHS on their clubs pages?

Try putting an ad in the newspaper (you might get some interest from general non-AHS gardeners). If your local nurseries have a bulletin board or a place that you can put up a flyer (or put a stack of flyers next to the cash register), ask if you can do that.
Now blooming; I love this 'Hidden Gem'!

Antsy - Where is your club located? City and State?

Thanks guys for the help. Yes, we are listed with the AHS, Region 6. We're in Tyler, Texas. We have announcements in all the local newspapers before our meetings. Putting out fliers is something that we have decided to do this year. The idea is that if you have something in your hand as a reminder it will be more effective. Hopefully.
Growing daylilies is such a rewarding and addictive hobby, everyone should have at least one, right?

Our club sponsored a booth at a local festival. Some club members donated fans that could be sold. These were sold as double fans, and some potted. We kept price points really cheep. We also had a board with photo's of each CV so the individual could point and pick out what they wanted. We also had a demonstration to show how their selections should be planted to ensure success as well as pass information along about the daylily. Pamphlets also were shared about our club. I don't remember the exact numbers, but we did gain a few new memebers. Good luck @Antsy
