Visitors to the Semmes Camellia Festival January 24 at Semmes Public Library can enjoy a camellia-inspired art show, as well as live camellias and table-scapes featuring the Alabama State Flower. One of the paintings in the Semmesonian Art Space is rendered by talented water-colorist Jaime Lee (pictured at left.)
A new facet of this free, annual event is the awarding of door prizes of camellias. Sponsored by Alumni & Friends of Semmes Inc. and Mobile Public Library, the Festival is chaired by Jeanette Byrd, who can be reached at 649-1647 for information.
