Peggy has loved iris since she was very young, but it wasn’t until 2000, she learned of the Johnson County Iris & Daylily Society in nearby Cleburne, TX, and was invited to attend. She immediately joined and became an active member.  She has been a “collector” of irises ever since.  Husband, Dan, joined in 2002 and they both became members of the Waco Iris Society in 2005 and were members of Lone Star Iris Society for 4 years.  Peggy has served as club President for JCI&DS and WIS as well as serving as Show Chair, Programs, Treasurer, Publicity, Newsletter Editor and Webmaster.  She was the Region 17 Membership Chair for 6 years and Assistant RVP for 3 years before being elected RVP.  She is a Garden/Exhibition Judge and has taught Judges Training classes on Awards & Ballots, Ethics, and Garden and Exhibition Point Scoring.  She enjoys giving programs on irises to garden clubs in the Central Texas area.  Peggy is also an active member of the American Hemerocallis Society, serving on the AHS Region 6 Board of Directors as Youth Chair.  She is both an AHS Exhibition Judge and a Garden Judge.
