A REALLY BIG SHOW

Sun, November 4, 2018

 

MGC President Helen Carter's and Flower Show Chairman Lucy Wilson's emails say it all:

Hello Ladies,
Wish all of you could have made the trip with us to Richmond. Our hostesses Leslie Hervey, Judy Ware and Cindy Edgerton delighted everyone with delicious snacks and beverages on the trip. We had our meeting at the Kent Valentine House then departed for the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Flower Show.

We were able to view 84 lovely flower exhibits. Of course our favorite was the beautiful arrangement by our very own Jo Grayson and Sandy Martin.
These ladies devoted many hours and trips to Richmond to make sure their interpretation of the pitcher (with the designs of a male's head and rooster) was accomplished in their flower arrangement. Their commitment and hard work paid off. They did an mazing job and made our club proud!

Holly from the Martinsville Bulletin joined us on our trip to write an article about Jo's arrangement and the flower show. Look for that article in the newspaper.

Thank you,
Helen

Wow! The article in today's paper is really excellent. Jo and Sandy have done us proud. I especially enjoyed their thought process for each step of the arrangement. Of all the interclub arrangements I've helped with, I don't think any of us have spent this many hours in preparation. We're all so very proud of your accomplishments. I know you two will never forget this experience. Thank you for being willing to tackle this.
Lucy Wilson
