NATIONAL FLOWER ARRANGING DAY AND THE LONELY BOUQUET CAMPAIGN

National Flower Arranging Day is on May 2nd this year.  It would be great if the members in our Area would embrace these excellent NAFAS initiatives and get lots of publicity for NAFAS in general and their Club in particular.  There are lots of details on the NAFAS website about what to do and how to go about it, and you can download tags and placement cards for your exhibits and lonely bouquets!  If anyone in our Area does something for either event, please let us have details and pictures so that we can share your stories!  You can download cards for your lonely bouquets HERE, and placement cards for your exhibits HERE (scroll down this file for the card as it’s designed to be printed and folded in two.)  More details on National Flower Arranging Day on the NAFAS website HERE, and The Lonely Bouquet Campaign HERE.
