In the Spring of 2014 Flint River Iris Society hosted the regional meeting and we toured Sam's vast iris garden .  

He has provided untold support to our organization, raising irises that we could then sell to finance club activities, serving as club president and currently as treasurer.   He has provided irises that the club has planted in the UGA Garden and also in front of the Welcome signs at the entrants to Griffin.
