WAKEFIELD – With 72 entries, the 31st Annual Wakefield Foundation Flower and Arts Show Gala was well-attended, and the entire show was a great success, according to Mrs. Joan Drewry, President of the Wakefield Foundation Board of Trustees.  

“It was a wonderful show,” Drewry enthused.  “We had probably 200 people who attended the opening exhibit on Saturday night.”

“It’s a very popular thing that we do,” she added, “and one of our big fundraisers for the year to maintain the foundation.  It was so nice.  For 72 people to do floral designs for the painting?  We are real proud of that and the artists that entered their paintings.  We have judges for both the art and the floral designs put together to complement each piece, so it’s a nice, nice show – with a lot of volunteer help.  Everybody volunteers our time, and we appreciate that so much. People have been so helpful.”

“It went really well,” added event Chairman George Williams, who has been in charge of the show for the last 19 years and took the photographs of each entry this year.  “It all came together very smoothly.  There’s a goal I like to hit as a fundraiser and we did ok on that as well. With 72 pieces, it was about 15 above average.  I think it was a really good show this year.  I’m happy with it.”
