Online Plant Sale now over - Thank yous

A big thank you to all the people who stepped up and supported our first on-line plant sale.
It was very successful and raised about $1,130 to support our neighbourhood flower gardens and the St. John School Garden Club.

The flower garden committee will have an enjoyable time discussing the best way to use these funds.

We would welcome people donating any empty flower pots, 6 inches across or smaller.  We sold 618 plants, so we went through a lot of flower pots and potting soil.  Just drop them off on the porch at 110 Strange Street.

Community Potlucks

Hello neighbours,

After a month or two of organizing we finally have some dates & locations for beginning our neighbourhood potlucks.

Debbie Chapman has graciously offered to host a potluck once a month at her home, 45 Strange Street (the corner of Cherry & Strange St). Potlucks will occur on the following dates:

Wednesday, March 25th - cancelled due to Covid-19 - until fall

Except for this month all dates will be the fourth Wednesday of the month. If I remember correctly we said potlucks would go from 6-8 PM

In the future we hope to host two neighbourhood potlucks a month, one on the fourth Wednesday at Debbie's and another on a different night of the week and on a different week aimed especially at those who can't make it to the fourth Wednesday potluck.

Book your calendars and spread the word!
