Peter Becker Community’s
2012 Flower Show
Thursday-Saturday, March 15 to 17

Peter Becker Community cordially invites you to the 29th Annual Flower Show, entitled “The Gardens of Eating.” This edition of the show again features the boundless creativity and energy of more than 120 residents and volunteers, affectionately known as The Flower Show Gang. Their efforts carve out a unique experience for all visitors from something that we do every day and sometimes take for granted—EATING! Come enjoy some of the fun we have with food. Not to worry, though—you won’t get caught in a food fight. But you’ll frolic in fun scenarios with a common theme—FOOD!

The Flower Show heralds the beginning of spring with its many fresh flower arrangements and plantings. Family fun and entertainment is guaranteed throughout the 3-day show. Enjoy scavenger hunts, craft and vendor displays (including antiques and handmade quilts), plant sales, homemade baked goods, two educational seminars daily, a favorite artist contest, a children’s art contest, working garden railway, food and refreshments, and prizes and giveaways.

Visit Maplewood Estates, Peter Becker Community’s newest retirement apartments, where interesting seminars begin each day at 10:30 AM and 2:00 PM. This year, the wildly popular antique evaluation and live cooking competition seminars highlight the agenda. Free tours of resident apartments are also available throughout the show. Again this year, we are thankfully accepting visitor donations of non-perishable food items in support of local community food pantries.

Peter Becker Community is located at 800 Maple Avenue, Harleysville. Online at Call Mike Tasch at (215) 703-4014 for more information or directions.
