Flower show gives women chance to bloom


WOMEN can truly create a masterpiece with flowers and influence their families and community, says acting provincial administrator for Morobe Sheila Harou.
She was the guest speaker at the opening of the three-day Lae flower and garden show which ended yesterday.
Women from as far as Bulolo and Ramu took part with displays of flowers, fruits, vegetables, trees and shrubs at stalls set up in the Lae Botanic Gardens.
Harou encouraged women to maintain the flower power and be influential in whatever ways they could.
“Women flower power is basically what women can to do to influence people,” she said.
Harou said women in their own ways can influence government decisions, and that’s the beauty of it.
“This show is the first of its kind and we are amazed by the things we see,” she said.
“The good Morobe Governor Ginson Saonu saw the potential of this show and committed K1000 to each group that took part.”
