Hats Off to Cynthia Druckenbrod, Winner of the Catherine Beattie Medal!

In May, at the Shaker Lakes Garden Club flower show, Cynthia won the prestigious Catherine Beattie Medal for a black (deepest purple) Paphiopedilum Orchid. The Award is named in honor of Mrs. Samuel Beattie, a member of Carolina Foothills Garden Club and former President of GCA. It is intended to stimulate participation in and improve the quality of entries in GCA flower shows.  “The Medal is awarded for a horticulture entry distinguished by its vibrancy, prime condition, and perfection of grooming.” 

 Cynthia has brought tremendous honor to herself and SLGC in winning the Beattie Medal.  It is given only if a superb entry presents itself in a show,  and often is not given at all.  How fortunate we are to have such a fabulous horticulturist in our midst!
