I just learned that the American Clematis Society is disbanding as of December 31. Yes, I did just join last winter. I'm reminded of a quote from Groucho Marx, "I don't want to belong to any club that will accept me as a member." I'd swear I was him in a past life, only he was still alive when I was born. In any event, it is a shame, as I enjoyed the newsletters and the website, which was very helpful and informative. Looks like I'll be joining the International Clematis Society. Or maybe I shouldn't. We wouldn't want it to disband too.
