ABS Convention 2005
Dallas, Texas

The combined membership of the Texas Begonia Clubs would like to extend a warm invitation to all the members of the American Begonia Society to mark their calendars on the 18-22 May, 2005 in order to share fellowship and the love of begonias at the American Begonia Society Convention to be held in conjunction with the Southwest Region Get-to-Gether on those days.

The convention will be held in Dallas, Texas at the Embassy Suites Hotel which is only a short distance from both Love Field and the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport. More information about transportation from the airport to the hotel will be included in packets.

We of the Dallas Area Branch, which is the sponsor of the 2005 Convention along with the Mae Blanton Branch membership in Fort Worth and with the other branches in Texas are working diligently to plan an interesting group of lectures, field trips, and fun activities for all participants.

We are anticipating speakers from all areas of interest in the begonia world, as well as from different areas of the United States and abroad. Plants are being gathered for the plant sale and we hope to have some of the more unique, unusual, and rare plants available for people to add to their collections.

We are looking forward to seeing old and new friends and we know that all who join us will not be diappointed. For more information please look in packets to be distributed to members in February 2005. And for all further questions or comments please feel free to contact Leora Henthorne, Show Committee Chairperson, at

Look For Great Things in Dallas, Texas May 18-22, 2005!

And Please Remember to Get Your Nominations for 6 ABS Awards in to Ann Salisbury before the deadline of March 1.
