Excerpt from Proceedings of the Fifteenth Annual Convention of the Society of American Florists and Ornamental Horticulturists: Held at Detroit, Michigan, August 15th, 16th, 17th and 18th, 1899 The reputation of Detroit as a model convention city, its accessibility by rail, its comparatively cool temperature in midsummer, and the well known generous hospitality of its people, contributed to attract a large gathering of the florists of the country at their fifteenth annual meeting. A feature of the Convention was the National character of the attendance, in which the area of representation extended over an unusually wide territory. The display of exhibits at the trade exhibition was one of the best in years. An elaborate programme for the entertainment of the visitors had been arranged by the Detroit Florists' Club; the features of which were a trolley ride and a reception to the President of the S. A. F. on the first day, a boat ride on Lake St. Clair and fish supper at Star Island on the following day, a shooting contest on the third day, and a bowling contest and visits to greenhouses on the closing day. The display of floral decorations, plants and bunting included an immense triumphal arch in front of the Convention headquarters, and an electric ornamentation of the front of the City Hall, with the words, "Welcome Society American Florists." At Harmonie Hall, where the Convention held its sessions, the registering of the visiting delegates, the payment of membership dues and other preliminaries occupied the time until long after the appointed hour for the opening session. Meanwhile, the greater portion of the visiting delegations, with the ladies who accompanied them, repaired to the meeting hall.
