Dear Pauline,

On behalf of the Garden Club Federation of Maine, I would like to express our thanks for making the 79th Annual Convention one to remember. Your talent and professionalism as a designer is unmatched. You captivated the audience from your impressive credentials until the last flower was placed. The feedback I received was wonderful. Your creativity was the topic of conservation. You make those beautiful designs look simple. Your commentary explaining and instructing from the “all green design” to the full color design was easily understood. You are so at ease that you make one feel that you are talking just to them.

Your designs were spectacular and we could only imagine what your large designs would encompass. Having you with us was the highlight of the Convention. Thank you for all your time and efforts in transporting all your material to Ogunquit.

On a personal note, it was a pleasure to honor and meet you and watch you perform your magic.


Mary Ericson
Convention Chairman
