Hello all my professional floral designers!

After this weekend I know each and every one of you are feeling like you
can design anything and everything-- and I know you can!

*Thank you - *First off THANK YOU agriculture teachers. Thank you all for
coming to the clinic to learn new skills. You gave up a Saturday and Sunday
to be there so I hope that the experience was a good one and will help you
in your classrooms with students.

*Survey -*  Please take a quick minute to fill out the google doc survey.
We cannot get better if you don't let us know how. Have your students fill
out one too if they want. Feedback is a good thing!


*CTAERN - You should be receiving an email from the CTAERN Hotline with
some information and a survey for the class. Please follow the instructions
from the email to complete the necessary paperwork needed to receive your
PLU Credit hours. Let me know if you have any trouble with this
process. Receipts - Some of you wanted a digital receipt. If the signed
receipt that I gave you at registration was not something that you can use
to turn in to your bookkeeper please let me know so I can send you what you
need. I would love to have all of these matters cleared up by this
Thursday.  On that note however thank you to everyone for having your
payments and being ready at registration. I know it took a bit to get
through the line but having the information ready to go made things go
smoothly.   Promotion - Below is a link to the AG ED Website where you will
find the photo gallery of all pictures taken from this weekend. Attached
you will also find a press release for you to use to promote the event in
your local community and on social media. Tell the story of agriculture
because if you don't someone else will. PHOTO GALLERY HERE
<>Thank you notes -* Please
take a moment and write these people and businesses a thank you note. The
first list below are the florists and volunteers  that were present at the
clinic this weekend. They gave up their entire weekend, as we start setting
up at lunch on Friday, to be with us and some even drove from out of state
to come and help. The second list is of the growers that donated some of
the product used. When a rose producers give ten boxes of roses they need a
thank you note! And the last list is the camp staff. They had to help set
up, find things during the clinics that we needed and clean up afterward. I
am not sure that they get much of a thank you ever, so let's take some time
to send them a note as well.
