The 2003 Show

Overcoming unusually hot and dry growing conditions here in the Pacific Northwest this summer, dahlia growers from Portland to British Columbia brought thousands of gorgeous dahlias to Floral hall and Snohomish County Dahlia Society's 94th annual show. Art and Julie Chmura, from Puget Sound Dahlia Association, broke the string of three straight years that a Snohomish County Dahlia Society member had won best in show. Their stunning entry of Light Accord blew away the competition. Novice growers, Paul and Cheryl Howard from the Fraser Valley Dahlia Society, won best triple in the show with three beautifully matched blooms of Shiela Mooney. Best arrangement in the show went to Jennifer Zuk from Vancouver Dahlia Society and our own Dave Eldridge won the best basket in the show with longtime miniature favorite, Mary Jo.
