Members of the Garden Tour Committee met today for a celebration luncheon hosted by Martha Griffin and Carol Sayeau. The occasion was a chance to review the success of this year and make recommendations for future tours.
A cheque was presented to the Scholarship Treasurer bringing the amount earned by the Garden Tour for the Scholarship Fund this year to $14 000.
Congratulations once again to Irene Hiebert, Karen Mouck and the entire committee!
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.
