Flower Garden and Nature Society of Northwest Arkansas

Although it is amost a two-hour drive and they begin at 9:30 on Saturday mornings, we are members who occasionally attend the Flower, Garden and Nature Society of Northwest Arkansas.

Meetings are usually held at the Student Center of NWAR Technical Institute, 709 S. Old Missouri Rd in Springdale, Arkansas.

The reason we crank it up to go despite the early exit and long drive, is that their programs are so good.

SOCIAL 9:30 SPEAKER 10 a.m.

Publicity Chair, Lynn Rogers can be reached for more information at 479-521-9090 H. 479-841-8759 C.
