Our meeting venue has changed.  Meetings

will now be held on the third TUESDAY of the month, at the

Atlas Tube Recreational Centre, 447 Renaud Line, Emeryville.

 

Our next meeting is February 17th:  Denise Summerfield will be showing us the Ollas pots which she imports from the Southwestern U.S. and explains how they are used in the garden as an "Alternative Drip Irrigation Method”. Learn how to save time & water in your garden and even purchase them for you own.

Pasta Dinner & Chinese Auction

Mark Tuesday, April 21st on your calendar!  This is the date for our 7th Annual Pasta Dinner & Chinese Auction.  It will be held at the Atlas Tube Centre in Lakeshore (the new arena).  Tickets are $12 and everyone is welcome, so bring along your friends, family, and neighbours.  Doors will open at 5:30 pm with dinner served at 6 pm.  There will also be a sweets table so if you could bring a dessert, it would be appreciated.   Tickets go on sale January 21st and there is an early bird draw in March for 2 $25 gift certificates to our plant market if you purchase your tickets.

The meeting portion of the night will begin at 7:30 (no meal ticket required) and following a short presentation by our speaker, Bill Schmidt, the auction will start.  Auction tickets are $10/strip or $25/3 strips with 15 tickets in each strip.  These are then dropped into bags in front of the auction item you would like to win.  We always have an amazing table of prizes – something for everyone.   And Paul Schneider is always entertaining as he picks the tickets out of the bags and announces the winners.

If you have a new or gently used item you would like to donate, we would love to have it.  Our members are always so generous and this is what makes the evening such a success each year.  So, come on out and enjoy the fun!

ANNUAL CHILDREN'S PLANTING DAY   

  

This year's planting day took

place at Belle River Public School

We had 3 groups of children

from the grade 3 classes.

 

 

  

 

 They all were so proud

 of their baskets, and even

 though it rained all day,

 we all had a great time.
