The 41st annual flower show at the Grace United Methodist Church will be held on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 4 and 5, in the church fellowship hall.|
The theme of this year's show is "Through the Seasons." The flower show, held from 1 to 6 p.m. on Saturday and until 11:30 a.m. Sunday, is sponsored by the women of Grace United Methodist Church.
The flowers entered in the show are divided into five divisions: children's artistic arrangement (14 years of age and younger), artistic arrangements, house plants, perennials, and annuals.
Area gardeners are encouraged to exhibit their flowers or house plants. Flowers need not be grown by the exhibitor for artistic arrangements. An exhibitor may make as many arrangements as desired but only one entry of each number. The exception to this rule is in horticultural exhibits where more than one color or variety of specimens will be accepted of roses, petunias, lilies, gladiolus, mari-golds, and zinnias.
Entries will be accepted between 8 and 11 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 4. The show closes at 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, Aug. 5. Any flowers left at the church will be kept in the fellowship hall until Monday noon, then given away if not claimed.
For further information, call the church office, 243-3601.
