Don’t miss the flower show

To the editor:

On Saturday, Aug. 23 and Sunday, Aug. 24, you’re invited to join us on a trip “Back To the ’50s.”

The Fort Dodge Federated Garden Club will be hosting its annual Standard Flower Show at the Crossroads Mall in Fort Dodge on Saturday, Aug. 23 from 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday, Aug. 24 from noon to 4 p.m.

Come and view all the exhibits and designs. We have three divisions: horticulture, design and special exhibits. Within the special exhibits division, we have a youth division so if you have any children that wish to bring flowers, vegetables or designs to exhibit, they may do so as well. If you are interested in exhibiting yourself, stop by Becker Florists in Fort Dodge and pick up a flower show schedule. This lists all the rules for the show and items you can bring in to show. Entries will be received from 7:15 to 9:45 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 23 and will remain in place until 4 p.m. on the 24th.

If you choose to make a design, please call Kathy Geisler at 352-3548 as we need to allow for spacing.

Judging of exhibits will be on Saturday at 10:30 a.m.
