The Garden Club of Elizabethtown began its July activities by managing the Horticulture Exhibit and Flower Show at the Hardin County Fair on July 8.
Under the direction of the chairwoman, Betty Childres, the display area was arranged and set up by a group of volunteers the day before the fair opened. The following day, other club members received, logged, tagged and placed the entries on the tables and shelving that had been prepared.
In a matter of a few hours, the display areas were transformed from white paper plainness to a rainbow of colors in the form of single horticulture specimens, potted plants and floral arrangements. Despite a growing season that seemed late this year, Hardin County residents were able to supply an abundance of floral specimens in most categories with the daylily category receiving the most entries. Throughout the week, a garden club member watered entries so that visitors are able to enjoy the display as long as possible.
Judging was done on the opening day of the fair by a team of judges led by JoAnn Gilpin, Master Judge of National Garden Clubs, and a member of the Potted Few Garden Club.
Top prizes of $25 gift certificates were won by Jana Gore, Best of Show in Design, and Diana Brummitt, Best of Show in Horticulture. Hugo Davis and Norman Freeman provided the certificates.
