Still a Household Favorite



Drew Brining of Hammonton is only 12, but already he's signed up with the Southern New Jersey African Violet Club.
He's even breeding his own plants.

It helps that his mother, Donna, is club president and owner of Fancy Bloomers, an African violet business. Still, he's unusual on two fronts: He's young and he's male in a segment of the horticultural world saddled with a "little old lady" image that just won't quit.
