Noon to 3:00 PM

Our Mid-Summer Social and Canada 150+ celebration

Summer Fiddler

.. was held under warm, sunny skies. Just a perfect day. Judging by the number of members (and potential members from the Wait List) who attended (60!), it was a huge success. It was a great opportunity to put down garden tools, relax, and socialize with fellow gardeners. It was also an opportunity to meet wannabe gardeners on the Wait List.

As usual, there was a cornucopia of food including salads, snacks, BBQ hot dogs, with all the fixings, muffins, cookies, fruit, and a beautiful cake (with the Canada 150 theme) from 6-Mile Bakery. Also there was a draw for two plants, packets of seeds, and the grand prize of two passes to Butchart Gardens. Thanks to Judy A. for arranging the passes plus a variety of seed packages.

A huge thanks to our intrepid BBQ Queen, Cathy Wetton, who did a wonderful job cooking up lots of yummy hot dogs for everyone.

Last, but not least, a big thank you to those who contributed to the feast, the set-up, and the clean-up. Without your contributions the event would not have been such a success!
