We have had so many happenings over the past few months and our annual show was at the top of the list. It was definitely a show of which to be extremely proud.
Much appreciation and many thanks are due to Karin Rock for spearheading all the preparations and execution of the show. JOB WELL DONE, KARIN!
Kathy Shaner was terrific and a joy to work with on our show. We have heard so many positive and complimentary comments from so many of our members. It is a pleasure to say Kathy wants to return next year. Our new vendors added much to the show and both Michael Livingston and Eli Akins have said they are counting on being here next year. I, for one, can’t wait to receive Eli’s pot for an azalea. Michael said he received many ideas of what to bring next year and this includes some larger stands.
Congratulations to Michael Lee for his Best in Show award. Your azalea is stunning, Michael. Congratulations to Brian Van Fleet for winning the people’s choice award. All members are to be congratulated for presenting such outstanding trees. It was a pleasure viewing and studying each and every tree.
It is said one picture is worth a 1000 words and this one proves the axiom:
Maybe a couple of words might be in order. Bobby, think Asheville! Okay that is three words.
All our club trees have now been sold and we will have a detailed report to our membership at the meeting.
Hope to see you all on Monday.
