The 2012 spring meeting was 3/31/2012 at Drusilla Seafood Restaurant; in Baton Rouge. We enjoyed a great program by Hybridizer Josh Jaques of Bayou Bend Daylilies. Elections were held to fill positions of 2 officers who resigned; President & Secretary. Since a slate of officers had been nominated for the 2013/2014 term, the nominees of Chris Bridges for President and Claire Fontenot for Secretary were elected and installed during the meeting.
