The Horticultural Research Institute (HRI) is proud to announce that it is the recipient of a generous $50,000 donation from the estate of William Flemer III. This donation will create the William Flemer III Fund within the HRI endowment.
William Flemer IV announced the fund during the HRI reception at the Mid-Atlantic Trade Show on January 12, 2012. Mr. Flemer stated, “His bequest to HRI exemplifies his lifelong devotion to the advancement of ornamental horticulture, and his abiding affection for the nursery industry and its people, his friends and their families, who have given their lives to the work he loved. His family shares that affection and appreciation, and is happy to know that, through HRI, valuable research, which will further improve this rewarding profession, will be his lasting legacy.”
