Hawaii Island Palm Society
This club is a little different.  They don't have regular monthly meetings, per se.  They come together for garden tours and an annual BBQ,, usually the first or second Friday in February.  I highly recommend joining to receive their newsletter where in more info on meetings and tour dates is made available.  Annual dues are $10.00.  Notwithstanding their random meeting dates club membership consitst of around 200 palm enthusiasts.  The club also does public outreach at the Panaewa Zoo and their web site provides a printable map of the zoo palms to take along as a guide.
