WHERE: Murphy-Wilmot Library, 530 N. Wilmot Rd., 594-5420

You do not want to miss this meeting. Our very special program will be a demonstration of Japanese Flower Arranging (Ikebana) with autumn and holiday themes.  You will wonder why we saved this program for our last of the year, but Presenters Joann Hyde and Judy Hansen were in great demand. They are bringing an array of materials and containers for this event.  You will leave with much knowledge about this ancient art and an appreciation of the beauty which results from its application. Teachers in the Ohara School of Ikebana, they hold extremely popular classes at Tucson Botanical Gardens.  As members of the Ikebana Society, they have been involved in designing the Japanese Yumi Garden located just south of TBG.
