2013 Children's Tulip & Spring Flower Report

The show was held at the VKH Community Centre Hall on May 11th, 2013. It was a cool, overcast day, 13 degrees Celsius. Thirteen children participated in the show with a total of 95 entries in 24 sections.

New this year were two sections:  “Narcissus - paper white” and “Any Other Spring Flower”.

We had no entries in the Iris section; this can be removed next year.

Trophies: “Gisbert Rosenstein Trophy” for “Best Tulip” was won by Lilly Calverley with her yellow tulip.

“Champlain in Bloom Trophy” for “Best Flowering Tree/Shrub” was also won by Lilly Calverley with a flowering Quince.

The judge was Anne Kerr and the pictures for The Review were taken by Louise Sproule.

Prizes were awarded at 1:30 p.m.  There were 23 first, 19 second and 14 third prizes distributed totaling $88.50.

Every participant received 3 purple double tulip bulbs to be planted in September.

Conveners: Jackie Craig, Jana Chenier and Monika Vogel.
