President’s award

This award is given annually at the discretion of the club president to a member whose outstanding service has made a significant difference. Dawson runs the club’s greenhouse and chairs the horticulture committee. She also ran the horticulture section of the club’s flower show last fall, and was instrumental in propagation of plants at the greenhouse for the club’s Mother’s Day Plant Sale. The club bestowed a number of awards at the luncheon and welcomed provisional members as full members.
