PG FIorala Garden Club Holds Installation Ceremony May 13 by Vera Whiddon Well - What a meeting! And how lovely club members and guests were in their long dres- ses! I am referring to the instal- lation of officers and the crown- lng of the Florata Garden Club Woman of the Year for 1975- 76 in a meeting at Fellowship Hall, First Baptist Church, Thursday evening, May 13. With the exception of 4, all members were present. From the beginning, enthusiasm was high. Adding to the enjoyment of the evening, was the lovely decorations of spring flowers, greenery and house plants. There was no doubt the meet- ing would be a success. With the rap of the gavel by the president, distinguished guest, Q. P. Flourney gave the invocation. Club members and guests then helped themselves to a most delicious buffet din- ner, made up of favorite dishes prepared by club members. Mrs. Lewis Eiland, a most efficient former member of Z0 years, crowned yours truly, Vera Whiddon, Woman of the Year and installed the follow- ing officers: Miss Vera Whid- don, President (second term); Mrs. Charlie Welch, vice- President (there could be none better and what president wouldn't be delighted to have such an efficient vice- president); Mrs. Marion Mick- elson, recording secretary, and oh what an accurate record she will keep, with her ability; Mrs. Homer Johnson, corresponding secretary her past record and success in this office speaks for itself; Mrs. VesterGamble, parliamentarian, who we can be sure of keeping us walking the straight and narrow, regarding our rules and regulations and operating strictly by the Con- stitution and By-Laws; Mrs. Lodie Kimbril, historian, who will be expected to keep a scrap book, aml we Imow we'll be proud of her accomplishments; Mrs. Sam Jackson, treasurer, who is most capable of handling our "cold cash" and keeping an excellent record. Our sincere appreciation to Mildred Kendrick for not one, but three beautiful arrange- ments for the banquet tables; to Mrs. Willie Harrison who made and arranged decorations for the officers table - a rain- bow with a pot of gold, so fitting since our club colors are taken from the rainbow; to Mrs. Charlie Welch, Mrs. Harrison and yours truly, who were res- ponsible for all the decora- tions, including tables depict- ins themes for the two most outstanding meetings of the year. Mrs. Irene Moore looked lovely as she presided over the guest register. A near per- fect african violet, furnished by Mrs. Sadie Moon, added to the beauty of the registrars table. We're indebted to Mrs. Moon, also, for furnishing fresh flowers for other bouquets and helping to arrange them. Our hat is offtoSocial Chair- man, Mrs. Juanita Radford and her co-workers, Mrs. Carlos Buffalow, Mrs. Homer John- son and Mrs. Lodie Kimbril, for preparation and serving of the dinner. Added to the table decor was a beautiful candela- brum holding lighted, rainbow candles. Mrs. Lewis Eiland accepted an orchid from club president, Miss Vera Whiddon, for a most impressive installation cere- mony. Following the installation, everyone relaxed a bit and tho- roughly enjoyed a color slide presentation by Mrs. Larry Woodham and her special guest, Mrs. A. T. (Lucile)McRae. Included were beautiful shots of the Merton Reeves rose garden when it was at its peak last spring; close-ups of shots from Mrs. Anne Prescott's rosepr- den in Chipley, the Fred Gil- bert gardens in Cottondale and Dr. Hal Bennett's rose gardens in Graceville, Florida. Also of special interest were shots of the Bicentennial Wagon Train Pilgrimage as it entered Ala- bama by way of Florala on Beau- tiful Lake Jackson; peaceful scenes of Lake Jackson and a slalom (ski) exhibition by Gary Woodham taken on Beautiful Lake Jackson; local home sce- nes when azaleas were in full bloom; scenes of Natural Bridge and its clear flowing streams, also of Finks Mill which has recently been added to the National Register of His- toricPlaces in Alabama; do- zens of blooming plants nes of the 1974-75 June Masonic Celebrations. All in all, it was a to end the Florala Garden year and the color slides sentation made us even mindful of our club motto Thing of Beauty is a ever." 1976-77 GARDEN CLUB OFFICERS INSTALLED.
