The flower show named the Lemon Bay Garden Club hosted its annual Standard Flower Show from March 23-24 at the clubhouse on 408 Yale Street in area of Old Englewood. It was totally free show, as club members see it as their gift to the community.
Many of the entries of the traditional flowers and plant entries, for members only, were judged in the Horticultural Division and displayed indoors and outdoors.
The theme of the show was, the Treasures from Trash this year that is encouraging for gardeners to express their artistic verges as well as use items not normally seen in a flower show in conjunction to a plant or flower.
In that show the Helen Coats Memorial Award Silver Plate award and the Artistic Crafts Award were presented to Kathy Myers in the "Recycle" section. Kathy Meyers did slice-up plastic foam ice chest painted yellow and combined it with a trimmed Schefflera plant. She titled her artistic piece in black "Avatar."
Myers scored the most points in the Design Division, won first place in the Dolly O'Brian Silver Bowl Design Award; and also won the Floralia Award for the most creative design.
The money that was raised by the show, like many of the garden club's projects went to fund local scholarships. The best flower cut award by the Flower Show Committee Crystal Dish was awarded to Killion in the Horticultural Division.
