This is a quick note to remind you that we have a meeting scheduled for Thursday, September 21st at the Ajax Legion Hall, 111 Hunt St. Ajax. The doors will open at 6:45, the meeting will start promptly at 7:30. If you have items to show please be sure they are in place as soon after 7pm as possible. Judging is to begin at 7:15 sharp.

Please note: We will be meeting downstairs in the Club Room rather than our usual space. This means our regular refreshments, provided by members, will not be available, but you can certainly purchase there. We are still looking for items for the Lucky Draw Table, by the way.

Our speaker will be that perennial favourite Matthew Dressing of Natural Affinity Garden Design, and his topic: “Aeroponic Gardening…Indoors and Outdoors”
