    Your support is invited by the Western Association of Floral Art Clubs.  At the Annual General Meeting (April 21st @ the Sidney Library) there will be a unique fundraiser; one that you will appreciate.  They are hosting an UPSCALE SALE OF FINE FLORAL CONTAINERS.  Here is how you can help.  Bring for donation a container (or more) that is,  in your opinion…upscale…that you have loved but no longer use and know that another floral designer would ‘die for’.  Put your name and the price you think it should be sold for on the bottom and bring it to the next Guild meeting in March.  Shirley Basciano and myself will collect your treasures, sell them with the profits going to WAFAC.   Remember this is the group that brought Marie Francoise Duprez to Vancouver last fall.  It is important to support them as well as our own club.


    Of course, we also invite you to come to the meeting; you may be tempted to buy someone else’s treasured container but in particular enjoy a floral presentation by the very accomplished designer, Andrea Strachan.   ‘Floral Trends – 2018’.
