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.”
“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.
Irene Hiebert and Karen Mouck
