Kerr County Cactus and Succulent Society Kerrville, Texas

We meet at 7:00 pm on the third Tuesday of every month except December, in the conference room of the Butt-Holdsworth Memorial Library, 505 Water Street, Kerrville. Every meeting has an entertaining educational presentation, refreshments, and a plant raffle. The business part of the meeting is brief and informal. Visitors are always welcome. We occasionally meet elsewhere, so check the latest newsletter a few days before the meeting.
