Celebrating the Flower Committee and the Camera Club

contributed by Julia Freeman

Collington residents, including members of the Flower and Camera Corner committees, filled the auditorium for presentations highlighting the committees’ work.

Pat Duggan, chair of the 40-50 member Flower Committee, spoke for the committee in remembering Bill Preston. Bill passed away recently but was known by all and had contributed so much to the Flower Committee at all levels. Not only did he grow flowers for the committee but he also had been active in collecting flowers from funeral homes.

Joe Howard and Peggy Latimer had prepared a fun PowerPoint presentation on the work of the Flower Committee, but the computer gods kept the presentation brief. Fortunately, cookies were offered to assuage the disappointment. Two pictures from the presentation show Pat Pritz receiving a call to pick up flowers and “clippers and strippers” preparing the flowers.

Bud Gardiner’s presentation on behalf of the Camera Corner went smoothly. Attendees were awed by pictures submitted by the committee members: Bud Gardiner, Joyce Garrison, Bill Colby, Anita Myers, John Hindinger, Peggy Latimer, Bill Kate, and Mike McCulley. A very few of the pictures are shown below.
