The Last Hurrah for 2015
We finalized our 2015 event line-up on September 12th. Gwen Wheeler presided over a brief business meeting that included presenting Nancy Erwin with her AHS "Wall of Fame" certificate (read the full article in our fall newsletter). The business meeting was followed by our featured speaker CH Falstad. CH spoke about how to grow bigger and better hostas, and made clear his technical content by providing fun demonstrations that required participation by audience members.
The pot-luck luncheon was a hit (as always) and the gorgeous centerpieces were given away to lucky people at each table. The hostas were donated by the Alleys (Phil and Gayle) who recently purchased the contents of the display gardens at Blue Ridge Nursery. The Alleys wanted to share a bit of history by providing approximately 30 hostas from the Blue Ridge gardens as mementos. Sandy Harris and Leslie Milby (our Hospitality Team) worked their magic and turned the stressed out plants into works of art.
A good time was had by all!
