SEATTLE CHAPTER
Jeanine Smith
In appreciation of the many years of capable service and able assistance in every endeavor of the Seattle Rhododendron Society we proudly present our highest award, the Bronze Medal, to you. Since you became a member in 1971 you have contributed your talents in many ways. Most notable is your leadership ability as Chapter secretary for two years, as president for two more and as a member of the SRS Board of Directors. Further, you have served for three years as District 2 director and gained the respect of many people. These positions were demanding of your time and yet you unselfishly served as clerk and judge at our annual shows; as co-chairperson of speakers at the Western Regional Conference in Everett; as an active member and secretary of the Northwest Hybridizers study group; and you were instrumental in helping the Meerkerk Garden in its reorganizational endeavors. Currently you are on the Meerkerk Garden Steering Committee and recently volunteered to chair the Site Selection Committee for the 1994 Western Regional Conference. We feel that this is a very small token of our deep admiration and appreciation. June 3, 1992.
