This years Citrus Expo will be in the Wilmington NC area... I plan to be there and will be one of the speakers at the meeting. Would love to meet as many members from this forum as can possibly attend. Here are the details.
The newest update on the 2019 Southeastern Citrus Expo

A continental breakfast and lunch will be included in the registration fee.
Boxed lunch provided by Lockwood Folly Marketplace in Supply NC.
I thought the attendees could make their selections as they register. Then we could call in the order, and pick up or have delivered in time for lunch.
I spoke to the manager (Lee), explained they would have 2-2.5 hrs to get 50 - 75 box lunches prepared and he said this wouldn't be a problem.
