ADS Bronze Medal Service Award

Minnesota Dahlia Society – Bronze Medal Service Award

The recipient of the award is decided by a committee comprised of the last five recipients, not the board. For outstanding contributions to the club. September

The Minnesota Dahlia Society awards medals to those who have given outstanding service to the Dahlia Society

The American Dahlia Society Medal is furnished to affiliated societies by the American Dahlia Society each year if their membership is 20 or more. It is to be used by these societies as an award, as they see fit. The Minnesota Dahlia Society has chosen to give this award each year to a member of the society who has rendered outstanding service in promoting one or more activities of the Society. It can be given to a member only once in their lifetime.

The Minnesota Dahlia Society became an Affiliated Society in 1930, and received two medals that year, a Silver and a Bronze Medal. During the early years, this medal was used as an Award Medal in the Annual Show. During the war years, due to metal shortage, Bronze Certificates were awarded. Due to poor record keeping in early years, there are no records of medal winners from 1931-1333.

The actual by-law establishing the rules for this Medal (revised 1958) reads: Article XI, American Dahlia Society Award Section 1 – The American Dahlia Society Award, as long as it is available to us, shall be awarded each year to a member selected from among those not having previously received this award, who has rendered outstanding service in promoting one or more of the activities of the Society. The selection shall be made after the Annual Show by a committee made up of the five latest available recipients of this award and the latest recipient shall be in charge of this committee.
