As you know, on February 24 and 25, GCGC is having a small standard flower show, and we need volunteers. Listed below is information on the times, number of volunteers needed, and types of jobs.

Thursday 2/23/23 11:00 – 2:00 We need 3 more people to help set up exhibit tables with tablecloths and section cards ready to go. Generally be ready to accept entries from noon to 5:00.

Thursday 2/23/23 2:00 – 5:00 Five more volunteers needed. This is when we will be in the midst of accepting entries and getting them ready for placement. So we will need checkers, placers, someone to help with classifying of plants (checking that entry cards are properly completed and plant is worthy to be shown and ready to place).

Friday 2/24/23 9:00 – 10:30 Two more volunteers needed for last minute checking of plants, placement, etc. Entries will also be accepted. NO ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED AFTER 10:30 since we will be getting ready for judges to arrive.

Saturday 2/25/23 3:30 – 4:30 Two more volunteers for clean up.

Members will: Do self classifying of their entries before arriving to library, cleaning plants of dead leaves and insects. Generally making sure plants are ready to be judged. Last minute adjusting can be done at a table outside the building. Once a plant is fussed over it will be passed to a final checker, then a placer.

Please bring your own clear glass vase as none will be available at the library. Entry cards should be filled out as completely as possible using pencil. Bring any supplies you think you’ll need. There will be clippers, scissors, pencils, ruler, plastic wrap, tape, extra entry cards available.

There will be a table for readying plants, a table for classifiers, and a placement table. All work will be done outside to the left of the entrance.

All entries MUST be removed between 3:00 and 4:00 on Saturday.

Please refer to flower show schedule. It can be found on our page It will answer all your questions.
