Gesneriads in the Emerald City
56th Annual Convention of The Gesneriad Society
Flower Show Awards
The chapter members of the Puget Sound Gesneriad Society are proud and thrilled to be hosting the 2012 Convention in Seattle, Washington. As Awards Chair, I need everyone's support to award the many winning exhibits that we are sure to see in the Convention Flower Show. With your help, I can recognize each and every award-winning exhibit. THANK YOU to all who have donated in the past. I am counting on you again this year. Never donated an award? Become a first-time donor and join the tradition. Remember, donations for awards are tax-deductible.
A member or chapter wishing to donate may forward an award to me at the address below. Checks or money orders should be made payable to The Gesneriad Society. Awards may also be made when registering for convention by mail or on the website. All awards must be received by June 18. Any awards received after this date will be applied to next year's convention.
Preference is for unspecified awards. Special requests will be filled on a first-come basis. If there are no eligible entries, or the category's award has already been filled, with your permission the award will be transferred to another class or section. Should there be fewer eligible entries than awards, the balance of award donations will be carried over for awards at next year's convention. Acknowledgment of all award donations will appear in the fourth quarter issue of GESNERIADS and also on our website. Again, thank you for your past support and for your consideration for this year's convention.
