FLORA AWARD 2017
Bettye Slaven, Janet Smith and Marilyn Waisanen were honored October 26, 2017 with the 34th annual Flora Award at Texas Discovery Gardens for their years of service to the Dallas community.
It is our honor to celebrate Bettye, Janet, and Marilyn, and to thank them for their time spent as Board members and volunteers at Texas Discovery Gardens. Between them, they have spearheaded the renovation of our Native Butterfly Habitat, inception of our Seasonal Garden Adoption program, creation of our Demonstration Gardens, beautification of our Grand Hall, and tradition of our Commemorative Bench over the past decade. The terrific trio has also devoted their time to countless deserving organizations in the area including Swiss Avenue Historic District Association, Children’s Medical Center Auxiliary, Dallas Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse, The Stewpot, Interfaith Housing Coalition, Salvation Army, Junior League of Dallas, and Dallas Women’s Foundation.
Honorary Chairs for the 2017 Flora Award were Bob and Myrna Schlegel, with Kathryn Febbroriello, Angela Shank and Amelia Valz serving as co-chairs.
