Since then, she took courses at SRJC and got her floral design certifi- cation and has been sharing her talents with people ever s]fice. Every year she co-ordinates the Bridal Exchange that fea- tures local businesses involved in some way in special events and travel, at the Citrus Fair- grounds. "My main goal when I do the Maryanna Reynolds bridal show is not just to pro- mote myself. I want the Bridal Exchange to show people in Clo- verdale what our City can offer. We don't have to travel out of the area. Talk to your merchants and you will find they are more than willingJdo what it takes to satisfy y0u," she said.

The members of the Clover- dale FHA/HERO chapter formed "FATE (FHA Acting for Traffic Education) to create community awareness by educating the pub- lic on different areas of traffic safety. "Every step of our educational process promotes a better un- derstanding of the issue of traf- fic safety for the members of our audiences," say members.
