A Golden Jubilation- 1969-2019
A Note from 50th Birthday Celebration Chair
The seeds of Friendship through Flowers sown by Lady Bette De La Mare in 1969 in Singapore are blooming for 50 years now and it’s my honour to plan the 50th birthday celebrations this year.
50th is indeed special – A stage of life when we have the maturity with experience but are still young at heart.
Likewise, for our Chapter, we are truly blessed to have our founding and pioneer members amongst us who have nurtured the Chapter over the years and many new members with exciting ideas for the future.
Celebration is in the air, so prepare to join the party! Together, we can make this year very special.
While every event this year will be memorable, pencil the dates for The BIG ONE on APRIL 25-27th, 2019 to celebrate the Chapter’s achievements.
If you would like to volunteer for this Big Day, please contact the committee – firstname.lastname@example.org
In friendship through flowers

ABOUT OUR GUEST DEMONSTRATOR &
WORKSHOP FACILITATOR: IEMOTO NAOHIRO KASUYA
Naohiro Kasuya was born in Tokyo & is the second son of Akihiro Kasuya, the third IEMOTO NAOHIRO KASUYA
Recently in January, Naohiro Kasuya was made the Iemoto . As well as teaching Ikebana, he has been displaying his works at solo exhibitions and a wider range of exhibitions. He gives Ikebana instructions or artistic support for movies and TV programs. He is also passionately involved in collaborative works with artists in different fields.
He conducts ‘Ikebana Live’ and workshops not only within Japan but also overseas countries such as the USA, New Delhi, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and the Ukraine, including an Ikebana demonstration at the New York Metropolitan Museum. He hopes that these activities overseas would raise the public interest in Ikebana outside of Japan, and that he could import the renewed value and interest back to Japan in reverse.
