NEXT SPECIAL EVENT:  You are invited to participate in the 2019 Huntington Clivia Show, "Clivia Safari" co-sponsored by The North American Clivia Society’s Southern California Chapter and The Huntington. The show runs from Saturday & Sunday, March 16-17, 2019, 10:00 am to 5:00 pm at the The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens, 1151 Oxford Road, San Marino, CA 91108. This will be an NGC Small Standard Plant Society Show with the Garden and Floral Arrangers Guild. Entries will be received on Friday, March 15 from 1–5 pm and Saturday, March 16 from 8–10 am. In past years, the Clivia Society has provided the predominant plant material -- clivia -- which we can use in the designs, unless you have your own clivias. Hopefully, this will be true this year as well. We will find out and let you know. Remember that MATERIAL FROM CLIVIA MUST BE DOMINANT IN ALL DESIGNS. If you need a schedule for Division II, contact guildonthego@cagardenclubs,org. Entries are needed in Division II. Please let Pat Clayes know at guildonthego@cagardenclubs.org if you would like to accept this special invitation to be a part of the 2019 Huntington Clivia Show. Reservations are now open and one entry has already been filled! Don't miss out!

We have three categories (with four designs in each category) available:
Class 1 Highveld is designer's choice of design style (space allotted: 24"w x 30"d x 36"h);
Class 2 Thronveld is a functional table for one (space allotted: 24"w x 30"d) -- decorative unit to be in proportion to one place setting -- not sure about what kind of "table" will be used -- we will let you know;
Class 3 Lowveld is a designer's choice of style, not to exceed 14" x 14" -- space allotted is 16"h x 16"d)

So, please mark your calendars and let us know if you can participate by making a design. And, if you are unable to participate, remember that you can view the show on Saturday and/or Sunday with a paid admission fee to The Huntington.
