Message from the President 2020


 Greetings!  One year on from writing my first President’s message, I can’t believe how quickly the time has gone.  There was a lot to learn but I received plenty of encouragement and support and am optimistic for the  coming year.  It has been great to get to know people a little better. Looking back on 2019, it was eventful – though often not as we intended!  However, our Board  members weathered the challenges life gave us and we are all back for another year, with one addition.    Edna Vardy is our newest Board member – welcome “aBoard”, Edna.    Looking forward, we have a great line up of speakers booked – thanks Betty Mitchell  for your continued  dedication to this area of our activities.  Planning has already started for our plant sale, yard sale and  garden tour.  Work at Victoria Manor and support of our pollinator habitat will continue, plus we are  very hopeful that the Lilac Gardens will be able to resume activities with the lilac trees taking their  rightful place in the community. Here’s to another year of gardening, learning, and enjoying each other’s company! June McCallum
