2017 broke new ground as the 2 past co-presidents passed the gavel to 3 new co-presidents.
2017 is a special year for Canada and our Horticultural Society. Canada is 150 years old and the Bracebridge Horticultural Society will celebrate its 85th birthday.Society gardens within the Town of Bracebridge are admired by visitors and local residents.In the spring of 2017 at the Millennium Garden, there will be a special show as the Canada 150 tulips, planted by society members, push themselves up through the earth. The gardens are cared for by our society members. Please join your fellow members and give a few hours of time this special year. Looking forward to working with everyone, enjoying the time together, learning new methods, sharing information, taking part in bus/car trips and encouraging new people to join our Society.
Welcome to the 85th anniversary of the Bracebridge Horticultural Society. The society owes its volunteer members a debt of gratitude over so many years of dedicated support. We welcome new members and all our returning members as we embark on this year's exciting projects and activities. There is a wide variety of activities for all levels of knowledge and abilities. They range from getting your hands dirty with garden clean-up and planting, to baking, organizing and participating in fundraisers, judging Front Yard Garden Recognition, tours and, - oh, so many more activities. We're always looking for new ways to involve members and would love to hear your ideas. This is your society so get involved. I'm looking forward to meeting all of you as we pursue our enjoyment of horticulture.
What brings you to our society meetings? Whether it be the question and answer period, the social time, or the program speakers, all contribute to the OHA mandate for each society to educate and encourage gardeners of all ages. This year, consider introducing a friend or someone who is new to gardening, to our group where they can learn, partipate in and share best gardening practices while building social relationships with Bracebridge gardeners. Also, if you have any ideas for programs, please feel free to share whem with myself or any member of the board. I am looking forward ot a rewarding year in all aspects of our society.
