Citation
Through the years you have demonstrated an enduring commitment to the genus Rhododendron. You have served locally as chapter treasurer, vice-president, president and board member. You have designed and managed numerous educational and promotional displays at area garden shows. You have managed phenomenal plant sales at regional and Society meetings. In every activity you have reached out to non-members to acquaint them with your favorite genus and bring them into the Society. You served with energy and vigor as District Director visiting district chapter meetings frequently. You have never undertaken any task locally or on a Society level without giving it your utmost energy and enthusiasm. You have participated in the ARS seed exchange program and have developed and registered several rhododendrons. You have been a firm supporter in the preservation of the historic Cecil and Molly Smith Garden. For your outstanding contributions to the genus Rhododendron, the American Rhododendron Society gratefully presents the Silver Medal to Richard "Dick" Cavender. May 3, 2003, Olympia, Washington.
