Record number of entries in Lake Annis flower show 

By Bob Brooks 

 LAKE ANNIS- The annual Lake Annis Flower Show and tea was held recently with over 75 local residents attending this annual event. This event  has been held continuously now for over a century. 

A record entry list this year made the judging extremely difficult with the judges remarking "that the adult and visitor involvement seemed to be up this year over previous years." 

The theme for this year's show was "place names in Nova Scotia." Next years theme will be "royalty".  Judges for the show were Gwen Trask of Wellignton and Margaret Trask of Yarmouth. 

Committee chairman was Janice Culver of Hartford, Connecticut. Mr. and Mrs. Scott Cain allowed the contestants to use the volley ball court at camp Mooswa for the show.  There were a record total of 53 entries this year - 38 adult and 15 children.
