Hi Carol,

I certainly agree with your comments.  The North East Ohio and Akron Area 
Iris Societies always provide for Commercial and Education Exhibits.  We don't 
always have entries in these categories but often do.  Arrangements are a very 
popular part of our shows.  Many of the members who don't grow a great number 
of irises get stalks from members who have extras to make arrangements and 
there is quite lively competition.  The arrangements bring a lot of attention from 
visitors to the shows.  We have show schedules available a month or two 
before the shows and give instructions at a meeting on how to enter and how to 
complete the entry tags.  Tony and I enter the most stalks in the shows and have 
to have a bunch of tags prepared beforehand with our address stickers.  We 
would never get them done if we waited until the stalks were cut to put on our 
name and address.
