Allied Florists of Wabash Valley Now Displaying Beautiful Holiday Flowers Allied Florists of the Wabash Valley, an affiliate of the National Allied Florists, is organized as a co-operative group of retail and wholesale florists to carry out a year-round program of education and information for its membership membership and also serve the general public in many ways. The specific interest of member wholesalers is to assist retail florists who belong to the organization. Monthly dinner dinner meetings are held and various projects conducted throughout the year.
