        During its monthly meetings at 12:30 PM on the second Thursday of each week from September - May in Leu Gardens, (located on 1920 N. Forest Avenue, Orlando, FL 32803-1537) the Chapter hosts demonstrations and workshops that come with a light lunch.  Also, its members take turns with their artful Ikebana arrangements on the display pedestal of the Garden House of Leu Gardens.  In  2010 Chapter 132 held its annual exhibition at the Camellia Room of Leu Gardens, and again in 2011 at the Orlando Garden Club.  To see the slide shows, go the Annual Exhibition page of this website.  The slide show featured below features a sample of our activities - and the fun that we have as flower friends.  You can be one too!  All it takes is a phone call (407-222-3163), or an e-mail to igomulka@me.com or oldNAV@earthlink.net
