Encouraging Clubs to Hold Standard Flower Shows
The Flower Show Committee has prepared a stimulus package to assist garden clubs that have never held a Small Standard Flower Show or that have not held one in the last five years to consider staging one. It is also to encourage clubs that no longer have the resources to hold a Standard Flower Show to stage a Small Standard Flower Show.
The package contains a model schedule for a Small Standard Flower Show (SSFS) with choices of titles that a club may adapt to suit their needs. Other items in the package will include entry tags with information on where to order them and how to complete them and samples of appropriate awards ribbons. Any club that has never had a flower show or has not had a Small Standard Flower Show in the past five years is eligible to participate. A Certificate of Achievement, offered from June 2015 to May 2017, will be awarded to clubs that complete this new venture.
The Student Schedule Correction Committee has written the model schedule. The show title and its division headings are Sandra Robinson’s theme for her 2015-2017 term as forty-fourth president of National Garden Clubs, Inc. A club may alternatively choose its own theme, section and class titles in Design. The club must reproduce their selected schedule for each member and the judges and purchase the necessary ribbons and entry tags. An approved panel of NGC judges must judge the show.
