Congratulations to Charlie Harper for being named to the 2018 President’s Wall of Honor of the American Hosta Society. This honor is to thank members of the local societies who have worked tirelessly for years to ensure the smooth running of their local clubs. In addition to receiving a certificate, names are inscribed on the President’s Wall of Honor on the American Hosta Society’s website.
Charlie joined in 2004 after hearing about our society through the Wood County Master Gardeners program. He is finishing his second term as Vice-President, and he also served as a director for two years.
Charlie’s garden was on our Members’ Garden Tour in 2005, 2010, 2012, and 2018.
Last year he updated our Black Swamp logo, and worked with Jackie Bachman to secure logo shirts for members.
Charlie pushed to get FACEBOOK and a website established, and he continues to provide postings and photos for them. He is our daylily guru – knows all the important people in the daylily world!
