New AVSA Survey! Joyce Stork ask me to post this so here it is.
All members are invited to participate in the latest AVSA survey to get input on several slogans developed by the AVSA Membership and Promotion committee. Your comments will help the committee to select a slogan that will be effective to use as we work to build membership. The survey is fairly short and quick to complete. Thanks for your help! 8/23/14
The African Violet Club of Ocala (AVCO) exists to bring together African violet and other gesneriad fanciers in the north central Florida area for the purpose of learning more about the care of our most popular houseplant. In the process of this endeavor, we are making new friends. We were formed in January 2007 by a small, dedicated group of enthusiastic African violet fanciers led by Carolee Carter.
