It took a tremendous amount of work, but our dahlia tuber sale moved to an online store format due to our county's COVID19 "shelter in place" orders. With the help and knowledge of our member, Laura Lucero, we were able to input all the tuber data and launch our site on 3/26/20. Member Cory Kelso came to my house and picked up all of my tubers and brought them to her house, where she organized a "warehouse" of dahlia tubers. Cory compiled and packaged all of the orders as they came in, and then her husband Jim, took the orders to the post office. It was quite a feat and I am so grateful that we were able to pull off this event. Despite the big success of the online format, I really must say that I missed having our tuber sale. The sense of community and fellowship of our fellow members was something that I missed very much this year. I also really missed seeing all the people in our community that would have come to our sale. Hopefully next year we can have our traditional sale and "shelter in place" will be a distant memory.
