The Youngstown Garden Club, which is marking its 40th anniversary, will present its fifth standard flower show Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m. in the Youngstown Volunteer Fire Hall, Elliott and Third streets. Admission is free.

Joan Broderick, general chairwoman for the show, said entries will be displayed in three divisions -- horticulture, design and special exhibits. The theme is "Memories."

Horticultural entries, which emphasize the natural beauty of the plant material, must be grown by the exhibitor.

Design entries are based on the exhibitor's arrangement of plants.

Special exhibits include crafts, educational displays and entries from the Junior Garden Club.

"Flower shows present a focused opportunity for our members to display creative expression as well as stimulate interest in horticulture," Mrs. Broderick said.

She added that the club also emphasizes conservation of natural resources.

The show prohibits displays of plants on the state list of protected native plants or native ferns. Exhibitors also may not use natural bird nests, stuffed birds, butterflies or other insects, fish or animals.
