The 39th Annual Avalon Garden Club Flower Show was held on Saturday, June 10, 2023, at the Avalon Community Hall in Avalon. The show was open to the public from 10AM to 3PM. Admission was free.
All Exhibits were judged by the attending Public as “People’s Choice” between the hours of 10AM to 1PM. There were 7 Artistic Design Classes, and 12 Horticulture Classes. The attending Public was provided with 19 pennies. The Public then voted by placing one penny in the coin holder of their favorite exhibit in each class. Children were also provided pennies to vote. Everyone voted for one exhibit in each class. The Award Ceremony was held at 2PM with then Mayor Martin L. Pagliughi presenting awards to “Blue Ribbon” winners.
As a fundraiser for the Club, raffle tickets were also sold to win one of several beautiful raffle items. In addition, the “Public” was extremely generous with their donations at the door.
