The Great Lakes Bulb group met on Saturday, July 15th, 2000, at the home of Keith Brown in Lafayette, Indiana. Members saw slides and heard a report on Boyce Tankersley's trip to the Republic of Georgia earlier this year. Sandy Ross showed slides, some quite old, of Lilium species that have been in cultivation and a few of the hybrids derived from them. There was a tour of Keith's garden, with numerous lilies still blooming, and his beautiful old post-Civil War era home.
