The Iris Society of Dallas is happy to welcome you to the American Iris Society Region 17 annual meeting. We hope you will join us this year. Everyone has been busy planning a fun weekend for you.
The Speakeasy fun begins Friday evening with registration, fellowship time, plant sale, and supper. We can’t tell you all the secrets of the evening. If you wish, please feel free to dress for the Roaring 20’s. Could be a flapper, gangster, top hat……….be creative! Iris people are mysterious people…that is all I can say.
After the evening entertainment, the Region 17 officers will break away for a board meeting. Others are welcome to stay around and enjoy the evening fellowship.
Bright and early Saturday morning we will have Judges Training with former AIS President Gary White as our instructor. After Judges Training, you are welcome to join us for a sandwich lunch and bid on silent auction items.
After lunch we will have our annual Region 17 business meeting. Please decide who will speak on behalf of your iris society. We want to hear all the wonderful things you club is doing such as plant sales, iris shows, fund raisers, and how you are successful gaining new members.
After a short break, the live iris auction begins. The auction is always a lively fun event. We have ordered some very nice irises we think you will be interested in taking home.
We will wrap up the annual event with dinner Saturday evening. Our guest speaker will be Gary White.
We all go home Sunday morning happy that we have seen old friends, met new friends, happy to be the winner of a silent auction item or two, and mentally mapping where we are going to plant all those irises we won at the auction.
The 20’s are here! It is the beginning of a fun decade. Please make plans to join us.
The event is not being held at a host hotel. You are free to stay at the local hotel of your choice. More information to come concerning local hotels/motels in the area.
