On Tuesday, June 19, the San Diego Floral Association will hold its annual dinner meeting and program in Room 101 of Casa del Prado. The catered dinner will be at tables outside in the courtyard at 6:00 p.m. followed by the meeting and program at 7:00. Officers are elected at this annual meeting.

We will be treated to a lively and eye-catching program presented by Jeanne Irwin, an expert in the art of using fresh flowers together with accoutrements from various sources to create beautiful home decor, as well as the loveliest hats you have ever seen. She has presented, on behalf of The Star of India Auxiliary, the award-winning first prize “hat” year after year at the annual Gold Diggers Fashion Show and Luncheon. This event in support of local charities features models wearing outsized hats, designed around an annual theme. Jeanne Irwin will set your creative juices flowing and provide new ideas for decorating with the floral bounty of the summer.
