How the Floral Art Society of New Zealand was formed.
In December 1964 Wellington Floral Art Club met with the Lower Hutt Flower Arrangement Group for a Christmas function. As a result of this meeting, co-founders Mrs Eleanor Dobbs and Mrs Gean Kerr convened meetings which unified clubs in the Wellington province and eventually throughout New Zealand. The first meeting of The Floral Art Society of New Zealand was held in 1965 and the first FASNZ Inc. AGM was held in 1966. Since then there have been 30 Presidents of FASNZ, with the first two being Dobbs and Kerr.
