Voila! The Public Exhibits Toolbox was born!I think when you see what is offered on the AIS website you will find something of use. And importantly if you have a tool that has been very useful, please share. Be a contributer! For new clubs (or those that have not had a show in a while), The Tool Box will have a sample, downloadable, show schedule. One will need only to fill in the blanks (Date, Time, Place. Etc.) and e-mail it to the current AIS Exhibition Schedules Chair for approval. The Tool Box will offer Show Schedule-Covers and suggested show design classes that will satisfy the requirements of garden club judges. The Tool Box will provide directions for obtaining free insurance certificates that are required by some venues, and offer ideas for youth projects and posters and display units. The Tool Box offers 3 large posters that can brighten the backdrop of a show or sale. These were done in PowerPoint and discs are available allowing you to have them printed at your local office supply store. (If you would like to create your own directions can be sent as to how to make a PowerPoint poster.) The posters can be attached, and so assembled, they create a 4ft by 6ft tri-fold screen, producing a large display. We welcome hearing and seeing your ideas. The more resources we can provide the more resources will be available from which every club could choose. Hopefully The Tool Box will make it easier for you to create a great Iris show. The Public Exhibit Toolbox is not a static site; contribute your ideas; watch it evolve and develop!
