The Annual Meeting and Awards Banquet took place in the Atrium of Meadowlark Botanical Gardens on May 11, 2004. This was a particularly poignant event because, due to the recent by-laws change, the Academy is now able to accept Institutional Affiliates — and Meadowlark Gardens was the first to join us. About eighty people were, therefore, on hand to greet our new partner.
The weather was perfect, the wine was pretty good, the food was wonderful, and the Awardees were superb.
The following photos provide a glimpse of the happenings.
