"The Flower Show and Plant Sale is fast approaching! 
It truly is one of the most exciting and enjoyable activities of the TVGC program year -- our gift to ourselves and the community. 
 The anticipation is building as each member of the club walks their garden, attends a floral design class,
or looks through their photos, considering what they will exhibit at the show."  ~ Susan Puma & Sheri Whitton
