Philadelphia Cactus & Succulent Society

2022 PCSS Holiday Party


The Discovery Center, 3401 Reservoir Drive, Philadelphia PA 19121


Each year our December meeting is a sit-down dinner and a pollyanna plant exchange.

The club sets the tables and provides hot turkey and ham, and we ask members to provide the other food and beverages. You're welcome to help set up, decorate, or arrange the food on buffet tables starting at 11 AM, the party is from 11:30 until 3, including a fast clean-up.

If you can attend, please indicate how many are attending (including yourself), and what food or beverage you will bring. (There is no need to indicate that you're not attending- we'll miss you but we're not keeping a Naughty list, that's just a default of the website.)

Bringing a plant for the pollyanna is optional. If participating, please bring a well-grown plant (from your own collection or recently purchased) comparable to what you would like to receive as a holiday gift. (Something better than our monthly raffle plants.) The plant (or collection of plants) should be wrapped in such a way as to hide the contents. Everyone who brings a plant will receive a number. Numbers will be drawn in a random order, and whoever holds that number will be invited to select a package. Trading afterwards is certainly allowed.
