MIDDLE ATLANTIC CHAPTER
The Middle Atlantic Chapter of the American Rhododendron Society presents to Barbara Hall this Bronze Medal Award in recognition of her generous giving of time and talents in organizing and carrying to successful completion our 1988 national convention in Williamsburg, Virginia. She was a relatively new member in 1985 when she graciously offered to help. This led quickly to becoming convention director and registrar. Her carefully prepared plans, organizing ability and tireless supervision of the plans' execution were outstanding. Her expertise in working with people and with the aid of her computer she produced a truly professional convention. As a member of the Board of Directors she will continue to support chapter activities. The chapter presents this award in appreciation for a job well done, November 12, 1988.

He was in charge of plant sales for the 1988 national convention and grew and supervised timely delivery of many plants from various sources. He has organized chapter meetings and facilitated planting the Rhododendron Display Garden at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden in Richmond, Virginia. The chapter presents this award in appreciation for his continuing and tireless service to the chapter and to the furtherance of the genus Rhododendron, November 12, 1988.
