Flower and Garden Show a success

A million thanks from the Red Deer and District Garden Club for the success of the recently held Flower and Garden Show at the Golden Circle Centre.

A huge thank you to exhibitors of flowers, fruits and vegetables and photographs who spent countless hours nurturing their entries to be able to provide such excellent specimens (570 exhibits), the local press for providing such excellent reporting, both prior and subsequent to the event and volunteers who assisted in providing of their valuable time with the set up, display, disassembly of the facility and afternoon tea.

To the sponsors, too numerous to list individually, for their generous donations of prizes, the judges for their time to come from considerable distances to offer their expertise on the quality of the exhibits and the entire staff at the Golden Circle that assisted in many ways to make a successful show.

Thank you to the Alberta Horticultural Association for providing judges and for their financial support and finally to the visitors who helped make the show an outstanding event.
