Calendar of 2017 Events
Thursday, August 3rd, 2017
Our August meeting will feature our own member, Jill Bonino, who will give a slide program on the irises
that were blooming at the AIS National Convention in Des Moines, Iowa this past May. Jill has been a
member of the SFVIS since 1996 and has held the position of Secretary, Vice President, Irisarian Editor and
Spring show Artististic Chair. She became the Recording Secretary for the American Iris Society in 2001
and was elected Secretary in 2003. Since then Jill has been the 2nd Vice President and is currently the AIS
Foundation Liaison. She has been an AIS Judge since 2007. She also shares time with the Southern
Californai Iris Society.
Being an avid photographer, Jill has traveled to many places to take pictures of irises. She has been to
almost every AIS Convention in the past 20 years and has traveled abroad to judge irises. Her photos are
always so beautiful and I look forward to the annual program she gives.
Jill says her home garden has evolved into a collection of bearded and beardless irises, consisting of Tall
Bearded, Median, Pacific Coast, Spuria, Louisiana and Siberian irises. Jill has given many programs for our
club in the past, including Judges Training, and has given her slide program annually since 1998.
Happy Gardening, Debbie, Vice President and Program Chair
are held on the first Thursday of each month at the Canoga Park Women's Club,
