Tacoma Chapter A.R.S. Show

        The Tacoma Chapter's 11th annual show was held May 14 and 15 in the spacious lobby of the Bank of California. It was one of the best shows we have ever had. The success of our show was due to the fine cooperation of our membership and to the nurserymen who displayed with us, also to the time spent by Mr. Ted Van Fossen of the Bank of California. The judges were Bruce Leber, Donald McClure and Mark Collarino.
