>
> Again this year we will have a petite point broach and earrings in an
> iris motief donated by Jill Bonino for the auction. In previous years
> this was the hit of the evening.

> Last year’s door prizes and auction items included generous gift
> certificates from hybridizers and iris items from friends. The proceeds
> from the auction went directly into the American Iris Society
> Electronics Services fund that sponsors such things as the digital
> projector for slide shows and the online iris databases. Last year in
