Garden Club Meeting – August 18th

Our August meeting scheduled for Thursday, the 17th 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.

Our Guest Speakers will be representatives from the Toronto Bee Keepers’ Collective.

Refreshments will be offered as usual.

Our stock of draw prizes is sadly diminished, and this is such a popular activity that we would hate to have to reduce or even suspend the fun. If you have something that you think members would be interested in seeing in our draw please bring them to the meeting.
