If you attended the January Luncheon, you heard the announcement about the generous donation to the 2018 Garden Tour from Belleville Toyota in the amount of $1000.00. This is the largest single sponsorship donation of all time to the Garden Tour. Thank you to Barbara Durnford of the sponsorship committee for making this happen.

President, Laura Hare and Barbara are pictured below receiving the donation from Andy Caletti, owner and general manager of Belleville Toyota.

Silent Auction Final Results

Posted on

Report from Alison Brown

The silent auction and raffle at the Christmas dinner was a great success. Once again, baking was a hot item and resulted in some of the largest bids (and activity on the bid sheets). Thank you to all who donated items. This couldn’t happen without you. We raised a total of $1,215.00 ($1,031 from the bid items and $184 from the raffle).

As you know, this year’s auction was organized a little differently. If you have any suggestions for improvement, let me know.

Special thanks go to the team of volunteers who helped me pull this together – this really was easy with all your help.

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.
