Emma Gilmore from StraightUp Solar will be the guest speaker at our May meeting, with the topic "Solar Power for Your Pond and Home.” Emma joined StraightUp Solar in early 2015. Her favorite part about working there is a culture that emphasizes teamwork and willingness to go the extra mile to help people accomplish their energy and sustainability goals.
Held at Missouri Botanical Garden's Ridgeway Center in the Beaumont Room, Tuesday, May 31 at 7 p.m., SLWGS monthly meetings are free to both members & non-members. We hope to see you there!
6th Annual SLWGS Tosai Koi Auction June 5th
Save the date for the 6th Annual SLWGS Tosai Koi Auction: Sunday, June 5 at 11 a.m., this year at Rick and Pam Jokerst's house.
View and bid on some of the country's highest quality imported tosai (1-year-old) koi from well-known Japanese breeders, including a special selection of nisai (2-year-old) koi. Plan to take home a potential prize-winner to accent your pond or perhaps enter it in a show. The auction is a great place to see and learn about many varieties of koi, meet and visit with club members, and potentially win an awesome raffle prize. All proceeds help fund the budget and other club events. Please check the May Waterword
