History of Ikebana of Richmond
Doris Roberts showed a power point demonstration entitled "History of Ikebana of Richmond" at Maymont Park Garden Hall. Doris Roberts has been a member of Ikebana of Richmond since October 1968. She has been President three times, twice with Ikebana International Chapter 130, and once with Ikebana of Richmond. She is the author of the Japanese Version of the Twenty Third Psalm, which is recited by members at each meeting.
Doris took ikebana lessons from Ellen Gordon Allen, the Founder of Ikebana International. Mrs. Gordon was also our Honorary President from 1967-1972 and a frequent visitor to Chapter 130, as we were known then.
