    NECPS wins many awards at big Flower Show

    Hello friends and fellow NECPS members,

    I am pleased to announce that the NECPS bay window display won several prestigious awards at the 137th New England Spring Flower Show, which are:

    1. FIRST PLACE (blue ribbon) among bay window displays.

    2. NATIONAL GARDEN CLUBS MEDAL FOR HORTICULTURE: An award to be given, if merited, once during the show to the exhibit judged to be the finest in the Horticulture Division. The winning exhibit must be a blue ribbon winner, scoring 95 points or more in a major non-standard Flower Show. A panel of NCSGC Accredited Flower Show Judges determine this award, which is presented by the President of the GCFMA.

    3. CULTURAL CERTIFICATE OF THE MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY: Awarded to growers of plants, flowers, fruits or vegetables which show evidence of unusually skillful cultivation.

    Congratulations must be given to the volunteers who donated their time and plants to this great success, namely:
    Shaun Montminy (project coordinator)
    John Phillip
    Ken Sicard
    Priscilla Purinton
    Emily Troiano
    Bill Matthews
    Matt Opel
    Jeff Matteson
    Bonnie Lambert
    Glen Lord

    Pictures will be available soon on our website.

    Everyone nearby should consider attending the show and seeing our awarded display.

    Best Regards,

    Ken

    Thanks!

    I don't think John posts on this or any other forum, but several NECPS members do.

    Congratulations! That is really awesome! Those are some major awards. That is really wonderful to get CPs promoted like that. Hopefully more awareness = more knowledge = more effort towards keeping all CPs thriving on our planet.

    Big hearty pat on the back to everyone who worked on that. Can't wait to see pics.
