January 2017 Meeting Photos

The January 2017 General Meeting was held at Bonnie Newman's house. Mary Bragg and Bonnie prepared a video of their trip to Holland to view the tulips and global flower market. It was fascinating!  More than 70% of the world's flowers are distributed through the market in Holland.  In recognition of Bonnie's service to the guild, she was presented with a gift certificate for a facial. Bonnie then transferred the gavel to Georgia Barneburg, the 2017 President of the guild. After the program there was a special event in which flowers and arrangements were auctioned off to raise money for the guild.  Many thanks to Merelyn Shore's husband Derek who was the auctioneer and did a wonderful job of driving the prices up on the bids! Merelyn also told the members about a trip on February 4th to Mazamitla to view the orchids (they're supposed to be spectacular!).  If you're interested, contact Merelyn.  The pictures below say it all - lots of fun was had by everyone.
