Karen has been volunteering with the Wilmington Flower Market for over 40 years! Karen has done just about every role we have including General Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, Director of Plants, and more. She started with the Flower Market when her close friend requested she volunteer with her. Karen says “Flower Market has been an important part of my life and my family and children’s lives for a long time. Being a volunteer at Wilmington Flower Market has helped so many Delaware children over the years and that is what I am most proud of as a volunteer.” She is excited for the years to come, and she looks forward to the continued success of the Wilmington Flower Market and the children’s organizations we support.
Christine has been volunteering for over 10 years and was introduced to the Wilmington Flower Market through our Chair Karen, who she knows through working together at MBNA and Bank of America. This year is her first-year in her new role as the General Vice-Chairman and second year a Pre-Market Director. Which she says “has been a learning experience for her”. In the role, she recently had to work with Delaware Today magazine for our pre-market auction event which she had to call vendors and businesses for donations for the silent auction and wine toss. Christina says “To volunteer for Wilmington Flower Market is truly a rewarding experience. I wish more people would join us!”

Lauren has been involved with the Flower Market for many years. She started volunteering when two of her friends, now former board members asked her to join. Lauren grow up in Wilmington and follows in her mothers foot steps as she also volunteered at the Flower Market. Lauren started as co-chair of rides which then evolved into Director of Entertainment which included ride and games. As the organization evolved her role of selling tickets was no longer needed due to Magic Money implemented in most fairs and events. As she still wanted to continue volunteering she accepted her current role Director of Grounds. This is her first year in this position but she has a lot of help from former directors Janet & John. She says “she is happy to carry on the tradition for many years to come”.

Ginny has been involved with The Wilmington Flower Market for as long as she can remember, spending every market in the Herb Tent with her mother, Alice Crayton. Market has been a huge part of her life so when the time came for her mom and close friend, Nancy Bercaw to step down as Co-Chairs of the Herb Tent it was a no brainer for her and sister, Maddie Clark to step into the roles. Ginny has enjoyed helping to raise money to give back to Delaware’s children and has gotten her own
children and other family members involved with the Herb Tent as well. This is Ginny’s first year as Director of Sponsorship after she chose to become even more involved with Market in memory of her mom. Ginny is excited to step in and grow in the role.
