PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Alan Fritz President

Dear members & friends of the SDCF&PA,

ASSOCIATION INFORMATION

It’s hard to believe that we’ve already wrapped up the 2nd decade of the new millennium! Time really does fly! These last two decades have brought a lot of change and challenges to our industry, but also new opportunities . We all know the challenges that our industry has faced so far this millennium, because we’ve lived through them . Some of them led to consolidations and businesses shutting their doors for good, and today we have fewer grower-members than 20 years ago . It’s too easy to get caught up in the challenges past and not see the opportunities in front of us . One of the things that I love most about the San Diego County Flower & Plant Association is that our members support each other . We are there for each other to overcome challenges, but also to open each other’s eyes to new opportunities . The thought-exchange that happens at our networking events is a priceless benefit of being a member; one that can make the difference between your business thriving in the coming decade or merely surviving . You know the saying: “If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together .” I want our industry to go far and strong into the future, which is why I am so proud of our association and every one of its members . I thank you for your continued membership, support, and friendship, and hope to see you at our networking events this year . As always, I welcome your ideas and suggestions on how we can make our association – and therefore our industry – even stronger than it is, so please don’t hesitate to reach out . I wish you a successful year 2020 filled with more opportunities than challenges! Best regards, Alan Fritz, President

INDUSTRY ICON TRIBUTE

Karen Thompson Thompson Rose Co . was started in 1965 by David Thompson’s Dad, he was a building contractor and that market tanked so he bought 5 acres in Carlsbad to grow roses . David was at San Jose State College, in the late 60s and was accepted by PSA Airlines to become a commercial pilot, but broke his leg his last year and had to have pins put in so the airlines rejected him . He came to Carlsbad to recover and started working at the greenhouse and loved it .

ASSOCIATION INFORMATION

His Dad left to build houses again and David bought him out . I came into the business in the 70s after we were married . This is a good one, he told me I didn’t have to work!!!!! Not my style, I split an office job with a friend so I could go with David to call on customers . We had access to his Dads small plane, then after about six month into the marriage he asked me to come to work in the office at Thompson Rose Co ., only temporary until he found someone… . Well I never left and was never paid . Ladies remember those days, I did not sign on his account or the business account, then disaster struck and David was in an airplane crash in 1975, he ended up a paraplegic and was in the hospital for 6 months . So remember I had no access to bank accounts but Tom Berkamp from Union Bank came to the hospital with the signature cards and let me sign on . Those were the days the business kept functioning and so did David and myself . David came back to work we put hand controls on a cart, we built a home on the property and life went on . I also started getting a pay check! We bought more property and expanded the roses . We started multiple field crops of cut flowers and started growing some house plants in the late seventies . We had at one time over 80 employees, boy were we working hard . More and more South American flowers were coming in and when a developer came to buy us out we said yes and moved only house plants to this location in San Marcos that was 2000 to 2003 . David had another accident and did not come back from it, so I have been here since then, but I was not alone, Joe Blair and all the crew here at Thompson Rose Co . stayed with me . My greenhouse produces only the best quality plants in the area . My greenhouses are maintained to the highest standards and my employees are happy, Thompson Rose Co . thrived . Joe is very much responsible for all of it, I have always stayed in the background but I have always been here . Joe and I made the best team, we think alike, get along, respect each other and I want to thank him for 40 years at Thompson Rose Co ., we are the best of friends .

8

This past year I have been waking up and saying I wish I did not have to go to work today so Armstrong Growers came in one day in late June with their Vice President, I was showing him the greenhouses and he said, “Why can’t we get more production from you?” I said, “We have other customers we have to supply, but do you want to buy my company?” It totally caught him of guard . He called a few days later and said they were interested, not in the business but an inventory buy out . We came to terms and I gave them a 20 year lease for my land and greenhouses . They not only got the inventory but also my customers . One of my terms was that they keep the employees, that was the main concern and they honored it . So Thompson Rose Co . is no more, Armstrong Growers is here . This has been a good industry to be involved with it has genuine, caring people, thank you all .

Dramm Echter Farms www.drammechter.com When Dramm & Echter put down roots in Encinitas, California, more than four decades ago, it wasn’t just flowers that flourished in the fertile soil and sunny coastal weather, but a family business with a passion for farming. The founding partners, Jim Echter and Gene Dramm, began farming in Encinitas in the mid-1960s. By 1972, a formal partnership was formed and they began shipping California grown flowers as “Dramm & Echter” across the nation. While many things on the farm have changed over the years, one thing stays the same – our dedication to producing high-quality flowers for wholesalers, florists, and mass market retailers nationwide. 1150 Quail Gardens Dr ., Encinitas, California 92024 Contact: Robert Echter Email: bechter@drammechter.com Phone: 760-436-0188 • Fax: 760-436-2974 See our ad on page 27
