The Columbia Gorge Discovery Center is unable to keep their driveway or parking lot free of snow. I will be working with our speakers and the Discovery Center to reschedule Cherry Day.

Regarding the Winter Hort Meeting: I have been in contact with the folks at the Gorge Room in Hood River, and Steve and I have been closely monitoring the weather. Currently, there are no plans to postpone the Winter Hort Meeting. However, given the weather things could change.

Please stay safe and warm.
