Feb. 6 – Ready – Set – Bingo!

Meeting location moved to Kapnick Hall where we hold our exhibit for this meeting only!

It’s time to get ready for the best exhibit ever.  It takes something from everyone, so if you haven’t done so already –

  1. Please be sure you are signed up to work on a committee by contacting any of these committees and volunteering!  We are asking that everyone who is able, be on a committee if they wish to put an arrangement in the exhibit.
  2. Take a look at the Exhibitor Information page on this site for all the important information on how to get your arrangement critiqued, photographed and placed.

In addition to a meeting to wrap up all the exhibit details we will –

  • Have some instruction on how to properly dress in a kimono or yukata and,
  • Have the opportunity to have our scissors sharpened and,
  • For a bit of fun and to test our flower knowledge, we will be playing a game of “Flower Bingo”.

Don’t forget – our nominating committee will be working to present a slate of officers at our March meeting.  Please raise your hand and offer to volunteer for an office, or to be an assistant to an officer or to work on any committee.  This is the best way to enhance our chapter as well as your Ikebana experience in “Friendship through Flowers”.  Our new board needs to have all the positions filled before the end of the season.
