2009 Support Our Troops Rock Garden

SUPPORT OUR TROOPS ROCK GARDEN
Some of you will remember that Tina Higgins approached the board for a project to help finish a Rock Garden that had been started at the Tilston Armoury on Sandwich Street. With Tina’s leadership and help from family members and members of the GWHS, we were able to complete the rock garden. We had to contend with the city workers strike but in the end we managed to obtain a large Redbud tree which we planted in honour of the late corporal Andrew Grenon who died in Afghanistan last year. Thanks to Tina Higgins and her family, Louie Fiorino, Dwain & Nancy Lariviere and Nancy’s son Bill, Ruth Sylvestre, Below is part of a letter that we received.
Dear Louie and members of the Horticultural Society,
Thank you very much for your generous donation! The Support Our Troops Rock Garden ‘Grand Opening’ was a success thanks to your hard work and dedication. The garden full of perennials and shrubs is absolutely beautiful. A lot of thought and planning went into this project and your hard work is very much appreciated!
