Activities for 2015

"Meetings & Programs" are generally on the third Sunday at 3:00 p.m., at North Haven Gardens.  Refreshments served.  "North Haven Gardens" is located at 7700 Northaven Rd., which is two blocks west of North Central Expressway and about 1/2 mile south of Forest Lane.  See them at  http://www.nhg.com/

The club does not meet during the summer months of June, July and August.  Our April meeting is our IRIS SHOW. 

March 15
3:00 pm
Show Preparation and Youth Awards
Two of our members, Clair and Alex Harding, will give us tips on getting our flowers ready for the show in April. They both became AIS judges while still Youth Members of AIS, and have both won the Cosgrove Award, one of the youth awards they will also talk about. Encouraging youth to become live long irisarians is an important mission of both the AIS and our club.
Anyone may enter an Iris show - not just iris club members, so if you grow irises and would like to show them in our April show, this program will help you prepare your bloom stalks for judging.

IRIS SHOW
Our annual iris show is open to anyone growing irises to enter. Entries will be accepted from 8:00 am until 10:00 am. Help for first time showers will be available. The show floor will be closed from 10:00 am until 1:00 pm for judging. The show will then be open to the public from 1:00 pm until 4:00 pm.

Many people think purple, yellow and white when they think of irises. An iris show is a great way to see new and different irises. You will be amazed at the colors, forms and types of irises you will see at the show.
Meet our club members who can answer your iris questions.
Make a list of the irises you'd like for your garden, then come to our Fall sale.
