The spring has arrived at last. It is so good to see the daffodils ‘dancing in the breeze’. I still have been unable to work in the garden as the ground is so saturated, but feel the need to spring clean and go for walks again after the long winter.
Plans for the World Show ‘A Floral Odyssey’ are progressing at great speed. Competitions spaces are full and most of the demonstrations have been booked out. There are still some places left for the Sunday demonstration and the lectures. Flower Clubs around the country are planning their outings and everyone is showing great interest in the proceedings. Those who wish to steward or be a volunteer are welcome to hand in their names to Moira Baxter directly at "Applewood", Kilcock Road, Maynooth, Co Kildare or to anyone on the committee. This is such an exciting time for AOIFA. I would like to wish Kitty Gallagher and the WAFA Ireland Board the very best for this wonderful occasion and to assure them that all in the Association will be supporting them.
Our term in the Executive comes to an end on March 19th at the AOIFA AGM in the Oriel House Hotel, Ballincollig. Margaret, Eileen and myself have really enjoyed the experience and would like to take this opportunity to thank all the members for their friendship and support over the last two years. We have enjoyed our term, working with all the clubs, and especially meeting people and making new friends.
I would like also to wish Brid and the incoming Executive the very best of luck.
Do come and join us at the AGM and enjoy the afternoon demonstration by Elizabeth Graham N.A.F.A.S. ‘Colour, Canvas and Concept.’
THE AOIFA team designing the entrance exhibits for WAFA need large amounts of contorted Hazel - If you have some please bring it to the AGM and give it to Marie Dodrill.
