Meet the 2022-23 CFA Board: Lisa Daniels, Jessica Mushovic, Samantha Bey, Fran Rogers, Sara Stillman, Jennifer Stein, Becky Hubbard, Kathy Fink, Stephanie Clegg, Pearl Syzmanski, Suzie Heap

CFA is bringing in a new chapter with a growing membership, social events, and the legacy of 100 years. 

The Coronado Floral Association (CFA), one of the longest standing clubs on the island, announced today its appointment of their 2022-2023 Board of Directors. 

CFA President, Sara Stillman said, “It is an absolute privilege to lead the Coronado  Flower Show into its 101st year and help the CFA maintain its legacy as one of Coronado’s longest running and most beloved traditions. One of our primary goals, in addition to producing the annual show in April, is to promote and encourage the beautification of Coronado through the love, use, and appreciation of flowers.”

Stillman says she looks forward to the community involvement that the Coronado Flower Show in April 2023 will bring, in addition to meeting all the wonderful volunteers and attendees that this treasured tradition attracts. The CFA welcomed over 7,000 visitors under the tents for the 100th show this past April and is hopeful that they will see the same level of enthusiasm for next year’s show.

The boots on the ground effort to produce the 101st Flower show is headed by the Coronado Flower Show Committee Chair, Jessica Mushovic, who is also the CFA’s Vice President. With the show’s planning well underway, Mushovic and her committee plan to usher in new elements to reflect and incorporate a broadening interest while still honoring traditions of the past. Mushovic says, “I appreciate being part of something with such deep roots and hope to make our predecessors proud, as they provided a strong foundation over the last 100 years.” 

In addition to CFA members, our board includes representation from Crown Garden club, Coronado Woman’s Club, Coronado Junior Woman’s club, and the Bridge and Bay Garden club, highlighting the importance that by working together we can accomplish great things.
