The FFGC 2023 96th Annual Convention was held at Embassy Suites in Kissimmee, Florida, on April 18-20, 2023. There were beautiful hallway exhibits on display. Our very own member, Margaret Chodosh, made the tall exhibit with bromeliad flowers at the entrance of the Convention hallway.
The current President, Marjorie Hendon, 2021–2023, Theme was WOW… Worlds of Wonder “Recycled”
The evening before was a fun-filled dinner show called, Trashion, where the officers and other convention members modeled on stage their fashions, all handmade from Recycled materials. It was hilarious, to say the least! Even the FFGC President, Margorie Hendon, had a fabulous ensemble!
We wished farewell to our outgoing FFGC President, Margorie Hendon, and welcomed in the newly elected FFGC President, Tina Tuttle, 2023-2025, and her theme is “Celebrating 100 Years”.
We also wished farewell to our outgoing District VI Director, 2021-2023, Suzi Bailey, whose theme was “Planting for the Planet”, and we welcomed in the newly elected District VI Director, 2023-2025, Valerie Seinfeld and her theme will be “Bee Happy in the Garden”! ??
The next FFGC 97th Annual Convention will be held on April 9-12, 2024, in Jacksonville, FL, “Celebrating 100 Years”.
