Region 21 Fall 2013 Banquet!

While I’ve reported some on the Region 21 Fall Meeting, the banquet that was part of this meeting deserves its own thank you.  The food, catered by Mangia, was great.  I should have taken some pictures of the desserts; however, I was too busy enjoying them.

Our Greater Omaha Iris Society hosts provided everyone with a Sass rhizome!  I believe they were all either ‘Midwest Gem’ or ‘Pretty Pansy’.  And from the Sass Memorial Iris Garden.  On a coincidental note, ‘Pretty Pansy’ was subsequently featured on the World of Irises blog in a posting:  Iris Classics:  “Pretty Pansy” which includes more of its history.

Ron Crampton prepared the amazing centerpieces.  I’m not even sure my picture does them justice.

And, as I mentioned earlier, our speaker Bob Hollingworth expanded our horizons speaking on A World of Irids.

Thank you to everyone for a most enjoyable and remarkable evening!
