Featured Collection – Memorabilia

The Library is a repository of memories embodied in ephemera and other tangible objects. We recently received the late Betty Ferris’ apron from the 125th Flower Show in 1996. The apron was adorned with pins of flower shows Betty volunteered. This apron held memories for Betty while she was alive and now embodies memories of past flower shows for the future. Another item of interest that we found in one of the pockets―a collapsible scissors that Betty used to manicure plants at the show.
