2018 Region 6 Meeting – “Beautiful Brazosport in Bloom”

May 17 - May 19

2018 Region 6 Meeting – “Beautiful Brazosport in Bloom”
Thurs., May 17 – Sat., May 19, 2018
Hosted by the Brazosport Daylily Society
Lake Jackson, TX 77566

Dear Region 6 AHS Members & Friends,

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to the 2018 AHS Region 6 Meeting hosted by the Brazosport Daylily Society. Events will encompass Thursday, May 17 – Saturday, May 19. We are planning to offer the following AHS courses on Thursday afternoon: Exhibition Judges Clinic II (Exhibition Judges Clinic I is a pre-requisite and available on-line) and Exhibition Judges Clinic III (refresher), and Garden Judges Workshops I & II.

We are delighted to feature six private gardens for our bus tours; 3 on Friday and 3 on Saturday, including an AHS Display Garden. We are especially excited about our unique venues for our tour lunches. We have secured the Lake Jackson Historical Museum for “Lunch at the Museum”. The museum building was designed by local architect Raymond Burroughs and contain exhibits on local history from the Karankawa Indians, through the Plantation Era, and then the founding of modern Lake Jackson, with information on the local Petrochemical Industries. There’s a fully operable locally designed aircraft (Windecker Eagle, the first composite aircraft) suspended in the interior, as well as an exhibit about Selena, the Hispanic recording star from Lake Jackson. At the time of our Regional Meeting, there will be a special exhibit in the rotunda commemorating the Diamond Anniversary of the founding of the City of Lake Jackson and how it grew.

Our other lunch venue is planned to be The Center for the Arts and Sciences in Clute, TX, which houses an art studio, art gallery, the natural science museum, planetarium, and two theaters serving the community.

The meeting hotel is the newly-opened Courtyard by Marriott – Lake Jackson, conveniently located in the Brazos Mall parking lot next to Highway 288. Because of all the on-going industrial construction in the area the last couple of years, accommodations have been difficult to obtain. We started working with the Courtyard by Marriott over a year ago, while it was under construction, to secure hotel rooms & meeting space in the same building, for our Regional Meeting. Due to all the flooding last year, the hotel construction and opening was behind schedule. We finally signed the contract on January 30!

For those of you who plan to stay at the hotel, you will be pleased with the fresh-designed accommodations. There are refrigerators, microwaves coffee makers and free WiFi in all rooms. The bathroom mirrors have an icon on them that, when pressed, will keep the mirror from steaming up. You can use the hyperlink in the on-line Registration Form to make reservations at the hotel electronically.

The public area of the hotel includes an open-concept interior lobby space with a bistro (serving Starbucks coffee), a bar, multiple seating areas for socializing, and glass doors opening to an outdoor linear fire pit with surrounding seating and waterfall, adjacent to the fenced pool area. The meeting/banquet rooms can be accessed from both the interior of the hotel, as well as the Conference Center entrance. We hope you will find the up-scale features of the hotel comfortable, especially after a fun day touring gardens & visiting other venues in the area.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to “small town” Lake Jackson for the 2018 AHS Region 6 Meeting and to our garden, as one of the 6 on tour.

Sincerely,

Nancy & David Freshour
