Merry May Meeting - May 28, 2018

Our next meeting will be on Monday May 29, 2017 at St George the Martyr Church, 197 John St at Stephanie and John Streets. 

WHAT’S HAPPENING AT THE MERRY MAY MEETING?

Merry is the theme of this last meeting of the season.
- Arrive early and enjoy a stroll in St. George’s garden, which is one of the Hort-funded garden projects.
- Refreshments, as usual, will be available in the kitchen.
- Raffle tickets will be sold for your chance to win books, and gifts. Purchase tickets at the meeting to win—$2 for one or $5 for three
- The Spring Flower Show. Enter your design or simply enjoy the show.
- There will be two speakers; Aamar Khwaja and Clement Kent.
- The Hort’s popular Garden Gloves will be available to purchase in time for your summer gardening days.
- If you have divisions that never made it to the Plant Fair, bring them along.

THE FLOWER SHOW THEME: Floral Hope and Resilience

It was a drawn-out winter and a slow spring. Events happened around the world, in Canada, and in our own city that may have shaken you. Create a bouquet to present to someone you want to cheer up and give a sense of hope to. Your tribute will fittingly include plant material from your own garden that miraculously survived our bitter and prolonged winter. Yes, we are resilient and we will ultimately come through our sadness and loss.
Please have your composition ready by 6:30 pm for our admiration and judging. In the fall show we will return to my more frivolous approach, c’est promis.
