January 21, 2013: Lambeth Horticultural Society member Marie Galloway was surprised with the presentation of the President’s Award at the January general meeting.  Marie recently retired as a Director after many years as the Registrar for the Society.
Using her secretarial experience and organizational skills developed as a secretary with the London School board, Marie streamlined the registration process.  Many members appreciated her personal touch in keeping them aware of activities.
Orchids are one of Marie’s area of expertise, her greenhouse is often “in bloom”.  She shows and helps at Orchid Show presentations.  While we will miss Marie on the Board of Directors we will continue to enjoy seeing her at monthly meetings and benefit from her experience with special events.
Thank you Marie for your devotion to the Lambeth Horticultural Society.
