TURNER — The Turner Natural History Club Museum will present the annual flower show and second annual photo contest on Sunday, Aug. 23, at the museum in Turner Center.

Entries will be accepted from 9 to 11 a.m. and judging will be at 11. The shows will be open to the public at 10. Entries will be judged to a standard of excellence, therefore there may be more than one blue ribbon per category. There are many categories and anyone may enter either or both shows. This is not a show for professionals. Amateurs and children are encouraged to enter. Ribbons and prizes will be awarded.

Flower show categories are as follows: youth through age 12 (although they can compete in adult categories), miniature,
specimen, unusual, antique container, herbs in a basket, wildflowers, unusual plant material, houseplant, woodland harvest,
business, any category.

The photo contest is open to any camera, any format, any size. Categories include landscape (includes flowers), birds, animals and youth through age 12.

The public is invited, as the event is also an open house and opportunity to see the natural history museum with its thousands of collection items. Children are especially welcome. There will be free refreshments as well as a plant sale.
