The San Francisco Peninsula Camellia Society will stage its 52nd annual show and sale on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 16-17, in the Community Activities Building, 1400 Roosevelt Ave. in Redwood City.
The free event will feature nearly 1,000 camellia blooms, a sale of hard-to-find premium camellia plants, a display of ikebana incorporating camellias, and educational workshops. The show will honor member Cameron Ainsworth, 92, of Redwood City.
Society president Caroline Beverstock of Atherton says Mr. Ainsworth is a "person with deep knowledge, who is happy to share that with anyone." After coordinating judging of the show, he will be available to answer questions and identify blooms.
The public is invited to enter blooms in the show between 8 and 10 a.m. Saturday morning. Judging will take place late that morning. On Saturday, the plant sale starts at 9:30 a.m., the show at noon. Both end at 4 p.m. On Saturday both the sale and show run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
