Bouquets Win at Fair
"Breathtaking!" and "Best in the whole division," were some of the comments made by the judges concerning Allison Kouns' floral arrangement entry. Kouns, 12, submitted a total of six entries in the flower division of the Wheatlands Communities Fair in Ritzville, Wash., and received two second-place ribbons and four first-place ribbons plus the Best of Show ribbon for her efforts. Kouns loves arranging flowers and has been faithfully providing bouquets each Sabbath for the front table at the Ritzville Church for the past several months. Besides entries in the flower division, Allison submitted three entries in the Arts and Crafts division and one entry in the Cookie division. Of those entries, she won one second-place ribbon and three first-place awards plus two special merit awards.
