Sale Report from sale chairperson Carol Addeo: Another year of a lot
of work by members. Thank you everyone.We got the job accomplished
again this year with no major problems. I guess by now we know how
to do this. The sale was a great success even with fewer than usual
rhizomes to sell. Thanks to Ed, Gary and Scott, Judy and Cindy for
taking the leftovers to the farmers market. The quality of the
rhizomes was good, and the work load was much more manageable. Thanks
to all the members who came to help with the preparation as well as
the sale day. And thanks also to those who could come out Sunday
before the sale the clean and trim. Thanks Bob for again picking up
and returning our tables to the rental center. We had 162 variety of
iris to sell this year.The
Friday stone soup supper was great, thanks to everyone who
contributed ingredients. The after sale party in the back yard of
Billie Gray was great as usual. Betty Ann provided our food. Thanks
donation of 24 iris rhizomes was made by MIS to Lewis and Clark
Elementary for their school garden and landscaping project.
