On Saturday May 27 at the Plaza at 9 a.m., a cheery hard-working group of volunteers showed up to get the flower boxes ready for the Canada Day 150 Celebration. The boxes were weeded, shrubs trimmed, new soil applied, and many red and white annuals planted.
A great big thank you to the following people: Joanne Folkins, Marcel Miner, Julie Schimunek (who planted the box by Westgate Church two weeks ago), and the Junior Rangers–Hayden, Julien, Genie, Ben, Jordie–and their leaders–Victoria Lempke, Theresa Beer, and Brenda Laroche. And thank you, Henry and Susanne of Eagle’s Wings, for the refreshing lemonade and watermelon. Thank you as well to Lisa Mellis-Jones for her assistance with the clean-up.
I trust I didn’t miss anyone. If I did, please let me know right away. Also, a big thank you to JT Pangli, owner of the Plaza, for his donation to purchase the annuals from the Timber Mart’s Garden Center. Thank you, Brigitte, for helping us get what we needed for the planting!
Canada Day is fast approaching. There are many ways to be involved. The slightly revised final program will be posted by June 15, 2017Email This Post
