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. 


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.
