Bronze Medal Awards
As a founding member, you brought to our fledgling Chapter a wealth of experience in rhododendron culture, which you generously shared with all. Under your guidance as president, the Chapter achieved significant growth, not only in numbers but in the scope of its activities. You have served the Chapter also as first editor of The Rosebay, as program chairman for the 1980 Convention, and in countless other ways. In grateful recognition, the Chapter is honored to present to you the Bronze Medal of the Society. April 13, 1983
