Planning the flower show started last year with the creation of the schedule. The schedule establishes the rules for the show, identifies which exhibits will be accepted, which awards will be offered, and sets the parameters for the floral designs and horticulture exhibits that will be entered.

The title of this year's show was "Reaching Out." Different sections and classes were named for the club's outreach programs. The show had 34 designs and 115 horticulture entries. Featured in this article are the some of the blue ribbon winners and the top exhibitor award winners.
