Mary Lou taught us how to make five different lovely designs at our August meeting. We were very pleased to host guests from the Heart of Jacksonville AVS for this special meeting. Our members exuded enthusiasm for creating designs for the upcoming show in Altamonte Springs after this informative and creative presentation. Thank you Mary Lou.

August 2013 AVCO Meeting !

The talented Mary Lou Harden, an accomplished designer, came from Tampa
as our special guest speaker at our August meeting. She enthralled the attendees
with her impressive presentation and hands-on demonstration. Mary Lou created
and designed an African violet dish garden as she taught us. Her finished
design speaks for itself. (Click on each picture to enlarge it). Thank you, Mary Lou!

May 2010 Meeting

The African Violet Club of Ocala's May 2010 meeting will be favorably
remembered for a long time! We were privileged to have Nero travel to Ocala
and explain among many informative things, how to repot and keep our violets
healthy. It was a fun and memorable meeting!
