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 will be April 21st. 

Bill Schmidt will be doing a presentation on garden preparation. 

This is also our 7th Annual Pasta Dinner and Auction Night.




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.   There is an early bird draw in March for 2 $25 gift certificates to our plant market if you purchase your tickets early.

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!







Last 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.

Cleaning out your basement or closets? Redecorating and purging before the Spring arrives? Please keep your society top of mind before donating your gently used items to other organizations. April will be here before we know it, and we need the help of our entire membership to keep our auction night a success.<
