AHS Awards Announced!

From October 13-16th, I had a great dose of daylily people, when the AHS Board of Directors, Staff and Special Committee Chairs were able to combine the fall Board meeting with the Region 5, Fall Fling held in Atlanta, Georgia. After two days of various Board meetings on Thursday and Friday, several of us were able to attend portions of the Fling that lasted until about noon on Sunday. Lots of good work done at the Board meeting and lots of great presentations at the Fling made for a great several days. 

On Friday night after the Board meeting, as tradition established, we were able to announce all the new Awards and Honors winning daylilies to those in attendance at dinner. That night, Webmaster Tim Fehr put up pictures of the winners on the rotating home page. 

Please check out all the winners here where you will be amazed at the variety of daylilies in all sizes, shapes, and colors. The two highest awards are the Stout Silver Medal that went to hybridizer gary Schaben for his flower, 'Northwind Dancer' and the Lenington All American Award that went to hybridizer Patrick Stamile for 'Ruby Spider' (pictured above). 

Congratulations to both winners!
