Evening will include Plant Auction, installation of the next season’s board members and Person of the Year Award.

I have made the decision to postpone our March 24 PCC Banquet until the threat of COVID19/Coronavisus subsides. I read many postings from the CDC recommending not to gather in groups of more than 50 and  a news release today from the White House that advised not to get together in groups of more than 10.In order to protect our members who planned to attend the Banquet, many of whom may be at higher risk, it makes sense to delay the event until mid-April, at a minimum.  I hope you, your families, and our PCC members stay healthy through this challenging time.  –  Sincerely, Lauren Mate/President
