Glide Flower Show

April 28, 1974

Though we listed this as “Hike Optional” everyone went on the hike to Fall Creek Falls (2½ miles round trip) and enjoyed the nice sunshine and many plants along the trail. The flower show was excellent as usual and included, as usual, several new flowers with some of the old ones missing because of a late season in some areas. The show gets material from most of south western Oregon with scattered items from as far away as the Columbia River Gorge. Currently it is the biggest and best flower show on the West Coast and probably in the United States (wildflowers-that is). The only problem is that the last Sunday in April is also White-water Boat Parade day on the North Umpqua and since stopping of the McKenzie River Boat parade, this has become an impossible day to do anything along the North Umpqua. So hereafter the Wildflower Show day will be requested for Saturday, when the main traffic will be to the show. Smelling the flowers were Lorene Bressler, Ella Carrick, Gladys Grancorvitz, Lawrence Hawkins, Kenneth Hixson, Pauline Layne, Man Wai Lau, Phil McGovern, Frances Newsom, Ruth Nichols, Betty Wadell, leaders were Kenneth & Robin Lodewick.
