2015 Exhibition Show

Utah Dahlia Society Exhibition Show 
 September 26th and 27th 2015

Megan wrote an e-mail that summed it up perfectly:

I am still on a bit of a "dahlia high" after our fantastic show.  It was absolutely breathtaking.  Thanks to all who participated in any way.  Especially show chairman Sandy Burgess.  Thank you, thank you Sandy for everything you did to make it such a success! 

The quality of the entries was the best we have ever had, due in large part I think to the fact we are learning as we go and becoming better growers.  I so appreciate the generous spirit among our group to share their knowledge and experience.  Every time we are together I learn something new.

Not only were the dahlias better than ever; the photos entered in our calendar contest were exceptional.  Congratulations to our winners!  The following will have their photos in our 2016 calendar: Bill Hughes, Elizabeth Palmer, Dick Taylor, Amy Hargreaves, Jan Litster and Karen Crook.  Calendars will be available at our November 11th banquet.  Cost $11.  If you would like to order any,  please let me know by Oct. 10th.  

Welcome to new Utah Dahlia Society members Doug and JoAnn Smith, Linda Newman & Connie Drenker.  It was great to meet you at the show and look forward to getting to know you better.  For those who requested receiving our emails and haven't joined yet, it is never too late.  Checks ($28 for individual or $32 for a family) Can be made payable to Utah Dahlia Society. Mail to: UDS, 1175 AUGUSTA WAY, SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH 84108.  Please send with your mailing address, email and phone #.

Upcoming events: 
November 11, 2015 at 6 p.m., our end of year banquet will be held at the Granger Christen Church (site of our demo garden) 3232 West 4100 South. Dinner will be catered by Joe Morely BBQ.  This would be a good time to renew your UDS membership.
