In 2018 DSO hosted the Midwest Dahlia Conference show at the Holiday Inn in Strongsville, OH.  Over 70 “dahlia people” participated in the activities.  The show of over 1000 blooms was open to the public and viewed by hundreds.  A beautiful display of artistic design arrangements complemented the show of blooms.  Thanks to all the folks who worked really hard to host such a lovely and well orchestrated show.  See a List of Winners.

The show also boasted a boutique of dahlia themed products which was very well received.  Much holiday shopping was accomplished.  The boutique profits greatly helped to offset the cost of hosting the show.  Thanks to the DSO members and others who contributed merchandise.

DSO is fortunate to have many good photographers and the Midwest 2018 show gave them lots of opportunity. Here is a slideshow provided by Bob Leonelli. Revisit the show by clicking on the picture below.
