Region 14 American Iris Society—Fall Regional
SOMETHING'S ALWAYS BLOOMING SOMEWHERE!
2016 Fall Regional
Get your calendars out and mark down these dates! We have an exciting Fall Region 14 Meeting planned for Friday and Saturday, October 14 and 15, 2016 at Alden Lane Nursery in Livermore, SOMETHING'S ALWAYS BLOOMING SOMEWHERE!
Scheduled activities start at 3:30 PM when you can groom your REBLOOMERS for the Iris Show. At 4:00 PM we will hold two meetings for sharing idea, one for Show Chairs and one for Program Chairs. If have some good ideas or want to hear how other clubs organize their shows or design their club programs, bring your ideas and questions and meet together at 4:00 PM. At 5:00 PM the Meet and Greet will begin with mocktails and finger food, enough to meet your evening food needs while you enjoy the evening program. The first presentation will be “The Wild Iris—A Specie Overview” followed by our very special guest speaker, Dr. Carol Wilson, research botanist who travels the world researching and collecting wild iris. She will show pictures of her collecting trips and discuss some of her experiences. We will leave sufficient time for questions and answers. Getting to meet Carol Wilson is a real treat, so don't miss this!
Saturday morning we will serve a Continental breakfast starting at 8:00 AM followed by the Region 14 business meeting and lunch. By 1:30 we will wrap up the raffles, auctions, and sales so that we can begin the Division V Artistic training for judges, offered by Dr. Anna Cadd and finish up the day by 3:30 PM. If you have never been to Alden Lane Nursery then you may want to browse early on Friday afternoon or stay late on Saturday.
