    One more thing--let's meet in front of the Arbor House, the small gray building to the right as you enter from R Street. There are bathrooms there plus the Visitor's Center may be really crowded. But those who want should go in to the Visitor Center and ask for a Cherry Tree booklet. This will give you great detail about the many varieties that we'll see tomorrow.

    Hi, if anyone needs to reach me tomorrow, call me at[masked]-7321. The Arboretum is very busy this weekend--easiest thing it probably just to park on the street in the neighborhood just outside the R Street entrance.
