At the last Program Meeting of the 2017-18 season, the 2018 Service Award was presented to Cheryl Karpeichik Whalen. Cheryl is Head Gardener at White Flower Farm in Litchfield, where she has worked for decades. Cheryl was a CT Hort Scholarship recipient back in the 1980s. When she started working at White Flower Farm, David Smith encouraged her to get involved with CT Hort. Cheryl has been generous to the Society with her time and resources. She coordinates our fall bulb sale and forces bulbs every year for the CT Hort display at the CT Flower & Garden Show. Thank you for your service, Cheryl, and congratulations!
