INLAND EMPIRE DAHLIA SOCIETY​​​ HISTORY

 The Inland Empire Dahlia Society, (IEDS), was organized on November 14, 1961.  That was 54 years ago.​​  Their first Dahlia Show was held at the Spokane County Fair, in 1962.  We are still part of the fair.  The Fair is now called, the Spokane Interstate Fair & Expo Center. The IEDS has 7 general meetings, all are welcome to join us.  There are three tuber sales and two shows, annually.  We sponser the Spokane VA Medical Center Garden. This is where, in the fall we get most of our tubers, for our tuber sales.  

We often plan different functions during our meetings for the off months. This is when we don't  have the official members meetings.  We also, have a picnic in August and a Christmas Party in December.  January the board and other members meet to plan the budget for that current year. There are committees that have meetings, outside of our regular member meetings, also. Included in membership, is our monthly news letter, called, "The Dahlia Fax".  We are not associated with any Conference or Federation.  We are affiliated with the American Dahlia Society, (ADS).


Membership Dues: Single $10.00, Family $15.00 - a family member is a spouse and child residing at the same address.

See the above subject page TAB LIST. It has page numbers listed because this web site can't print our Annual IEDS Dahlia Show Guide more than one page at a time, so choose the page that you want to print, individually. Annual show guide is page 1.  

We apologize.  Hopefully, this will be remedied soon.
