Hello Fellow Members of CFUW Belleville and District,

Today’s  18th Annual Town and Country Garden Tour has come to a close.
It was a wonderful day.

Some comments we heard today:  

“I have seen three gardens so far:  each one is my favourite.”

“Each garden is so different, yet so special.”

“I do not need an evaluation form: everything was perfect.”

“Great lunch.”

“What a wonderful day’s outing.”

“Can’t wait for next year.”

Thank you all, for all that you have done to make this day such a
resounding success.  Our Scholarship Trust fund will soon receive the
proceeds.  Details of the numbers will follow.
