Member's Night


Wednesday, January 17, 2018 - 7:00pm to Thursday, January 18, 2018 - 6:45pm




Unitarian Church Annex, 208 E. Buffalo St., 2nd floor (entrance on Buffalo!)


Show pictures or artwork, read a poem, ask a burning question, explain your latest plant-related theory or discovery.  This event provides you a chance to share your "phyto" stuff (tangible and otherwise) with your fellow members.

Members Night Needs YOU!

The annual FLNPS Members Night, begun in 2015, has proven quite popular.  Attendees have enjoyed the variety of the presentations and the chance to learn about their fellow members' interests and talents. (See the link above for intriguing reviews of the three prior Members Nights.)  So we'll do it again this coming January. And of course we'll need your help!

If you like to take photos, paint, draw, write poetry (or read the poems of others), do needlepoint, sing and play music, tell stories, or do anything else with a plant-related theme that you think others might enjoy, please come and share your talents and enthusiasm with us. You can make a presentation or bring interesting objects for the exhibit table.

The more participation we have, the more fun this evening will be. If you would like to do a presentation (or a mini poster presentation at the exhibit table), please reach out to Audrey Bowe ( by January 7th, 2018 with the following information:

1) presentation topic and format
2) any technical support needed (e.g., video projector, microphone, etc.)
3) estimated presentation length (can be anywhere from 2 – 20 minutes)
4) any preference for your position in the evening's sequence (earlier vs later)
5) your preferred email address and phone number
6) any questions, or information you think is important

Exhibit table

Consider bringing interesting plant-related items to be included on the exhibit table.  Items may be arts and crafts, peculiar seed pods, cartoons, etc.  For self-explanatory displays, there's no need to let us know in advance, unless your item is bigger than a breadbox or can't sit on a tabletop.  (If so, contact Rosemarie at  But please come ten or fifteen minutes before 7pm, to make sure your item gets set up the way you want it to. You may wish to include a small card with your name and perhaps an identification or brief explanation of the item.

If you'd like to do something more like a scientific poster presentation (where you actively explain details to the exhibit viewers), we welcome that at the exhibit table too.  In that case, please let both Audrey and Rosemarie know of your plans as early as possible, and no later than the January 7 deadline mentioned above.

We look forward to seeing you at the fourth annual Members Night.  Help us make it as fun and fascinating as the first three!
