The Iris Standard - Past Editions

The newsletter for the Ontario Iris Society was first published in August 2006 when members decided a club newsletter was needed to stay up to date with activities. 

Volume 1, Issue 1
came out August 1, 2006 and was one page in length.  It announced the award recipients at the June flower show and gave us details on the annual iris rhizome auction and sale coming up that same month at the TBG.  Also announced was a contest to name our newly founded newsletter.

Volume 1, Issue 2 came out October 1, 2006.  Members submitted 29 possible names for our newsletter.  The Board whittled that down to five and members were asked to select one.  In the end members agreed that THE IRIS STANDARD was the best name for our bi-monthly newsletter.  Member Kathy Green, who submitted the suggestion, was the lucky winner of four of our President's favourite irises.
