I hope we say it dozens of times everyday. Sometimes it’s for something small, sometimes something big. Often we say it in such a casual way that it doesn’t mean much. The American Hosta Society is a society of volunteers. From the clerks in the Hosta Leaf Show to the president of the society, no one gets paid. The society is supported on the shoulders of its members. The Awards of the American Hosta Society are how we say “Thank-you” to the members who have sometimes worked a lifetime in service to the genus Hosta. We say it in a big way, with the heartfelt emotion of friends who recognize the sacrifice of time and energy made by our members.
