I have participated in TCSS since 1977 when Robert and I first moved to Tucson. I have served as the Cactus Rescue Coordinator for the past six years. During this time, we have organized and led 273 rescues. Along with my husband, I also organize the raffle, door prize, and free plant distributions at the monthly meetings, including the slide presentation that supplies information about each plant. I have been a member of the Board since 2015, and I fill in my spare time helping with garden tours, special events, and taking care of our greenhouse and cactus garden.
