Ikebana International 71 chartered in Philadelphia in 1964, The aims of Ikebana International are to stimulate, cultivate and perpetuate the study of Ikebana, related arts, and culture by demonstrations and public exhibitions to establish better relationships among all peoples through the motto.
150 folks signed up for the dinner at Longwood Garden on September 20, celebrating our chapter's 50th Anniversary!
We arrived at the front entrance of Longwood Garden visitors Center 6:20 pm, and rode one of the shuttles up to the conservatory for the cocktail.  We strolled and saw the first rotation of our special 50th anniversary exhibit in the orangery and fern floor areas before 7:00 pm.  We walked to the terrace area for dinner in the marquee around 8:00 pm. When we finished dinner and back home was passed midnight.  we all enjoyed an evening of friendship, flowers and fun!  It was a Fantastic night! (9-20-14)
