A Message From the Flower Show Chair – Kathleen Hawryluk
I have finally gotten around to getting my feet on the ground – I have been flying high! So must you all.
What a show we put on – I heard nothing but accolades from everyone! The Preview Party, the designs, the use of the light technology, the staging, the horticulture, etc. were all outstanding and without flaw. The Parasol ladies (PL’s) were again a big hit – one said that she had her picture taken 106 times and I believe her! One guest said that every time he saw one of them (PL’s) he smiled!
