This year, the Floral Design Group will sponsor the RGC program on February 7th, featuring noted designer Steven Taras.  There will be several opportunities to experience Steve’s work again during the NC Museum of Art’s “Art in Bloom” festival, March 22-25, 2018. 

During the year we will have a chance to enter and/or view several flower shows. It will be a busy year having fun with flowers!
