Arissa Garden Club is having a flower show this weekend. It’s scheduled for Saturday, May 6, and Sunday, May 7, at Grace Lutheran Church at 131 West Gettysburg Avenue.
The free event is open to the public from noon to 3 p.m. on Saturday. The flower show will remain in the narthex at the church for viewing by those who attend Sunday morning services and the special music program at 3 p.m. Sunday, a press release said.
The flower show is part of the Flower Festival that takes place at Grace Lutheran Church this weekend.
The flower show theme, in keeping with the Flower Festival theme, highlights the beauty of the earth, the press release said. Twelve floral designs, along with horticulture specimens, will be featured and judged by a panel of judges accredited by the National Garden Clubs Inc. Arissa will also have a special exhibit on native plants, the press release said. Arissa’s goal in the flower show is to arouse interest in gardening and conservation.

Currently, the club maintains the garden they created at Oak Ridge Public Library. Cathy Waitinas is president of Arissa.
