Garden Ontario Convention:  Green from Shore to Shore

 Date:  July 21 - 23, 2017  Hosted by: OHA District 5

 Location:  Sheraton Parkway North Hotel - Richmond Hill

Volunteers:  Nancy Serrick has started recruiting volunteers for onsite roles.

Volunteers putting in 15 hours of volunteer time (before or during the convention) will qualify for a special registration fee of $50 that covers all three days.

So keep careful track of your volunteer hours for Convention.

We have a limit of 90 such registrations.

All volunteers will need to register through Nancy Serrick.  Nancy will send out special volunteer registration forms later in the year.

Note that if you register with the volunteer form, you do not qualify as a voting delegate for your Society. The OHA is asking that all voting delegates pay full registration.  In addition, as a volunteer, you can sign up for a bus tour, however, the registrar will fill the buses with people paying the full registration fee first.

Volunteers who register can purchase meals via their registration form.

You will need to arrange from accommodation separately.  Please identify that you are with OHA to get the convention rate.

District 5 Event at Convention

On the night of Friday July 21, District 5 has an opportunity to sparkle.  District 5 is planning a fun and impressive celebration for attendees with a Canada 150 Anniversary theme.  We will have a story teller, a magician, Canadian style food, Canadian trivia, the best silent auction in the history of silent auctions, and much, much more.

Please encourage your members to attend this evening if they are coming to the convention.
