Donation and Payment

1. Private donation from the Gesneriad Society members:

Betsy Gottshall, treasurer of the Liberty Bell chapter of the Gesneriad Society in Philadelphia, presented a donation of $150 to the GCCC at the 2018 Gesneriad Society annual Convention in Framingham, Massachusetts. The funds were raised when members of the Liberty Bell chapter spoke at their monthly meetings and instead of receiving $50 for their presentation, took the option of donating the funds to the GCCC. Stephen Maciejewski raised $100 from his two presentations on “People, Places and Plants at the 2017 Gesneriad Society Convention, Omaha, Nebraska” and for “Gesneriads at the Philadelphia Flower Show.”  Julie Bare donated her $50 from her talk and demonstration on making and maintaining “Terrariums”.

2. Donation from the Gesneriad Society Members and ChaptersOct2017

As you know, the nursery of GCCC was hit by terrible floods in July this year.  The ongoing work of all of the GCCC members and staff was immensely affected because so much of the plant material, including: leaf-cuttings, seedlings and suckers were nearly all destroyed and those saved were all mixed up. After hearing about this bad news, Stephen Maciejewski, gave a slide show report on it at the GS convention  conservation meeting in July. Members of the Puget Sound chapter of the Gesneriad Society, then generously donated $ 500 to help deal with the flooding issued at the GCCC.

Dee and Bob stewart, members of the Buxton chapter The Gesnerid Sociiety, Massachusetts, U.S.A. also made a very generous donation of many Achimenes rhizomes.

Stephen Maciejewski also brought over the $2100 donation which he raised from the group trip last May for the GCCC.

Thanks to The Gesneriad Society, the Puget Sound chapter of the Gesneriad Society, Dee and Bob Stewart and Stephen Maciejewski!
