Pamela MacCormack

We mourn the loss of our esteemed and beloved member of LICS, Pamela Anne MacCormack, who passed on September 8, 2021 in Florida after a long and courageous battle with pancreatic cancer.

If you would like to know more about Pamela:



The LICS arranged an award dinner and ceremony to honor Joan Corbisiero on the evening of November first at the lovely home of member Renu Sharma. The presentation of the awards and letters of congratulations from NCS president Dan Schadler and LICS member Ivor Mace was followed by a delicious dinner prepared by Renu, champagne provided by Joan, and chocolate mousse cake. The lively conversation turned to mum culture, as always whenever a few mum growers gather.
