PRESIDENTS REPORT FOR DECEMBER 2018
Seasons Greetings to all the members of the Cowichan Valley Garden Club. So far December has been chilly with storms heading this way. However the new seed catalogues are on their way so pull up a chair and enjoy planning next years gardens.
There won’t be a speaker at the December meeting but instead there will be entertainment with music and vocals from a group called Homemade Jam. So come and enjoy the festivities and sing a few Christmas carols.
If you would like to donate a non perishable item or money to the food bank there will be boxes at the back of the hall to receive them.
Last months parlour show was spectacular so lets make this months even better with lots of sparkle!
Richard will be presenting parlor show awards to members who have won the most ribbons in 2018.
At the Mix and Mingle after the November 14 meeting, we discussed the information provided by our speaker Jay Rastogi on Invasive Plants, using excellent resources published by the Invasive Species Council of BC. We ran out of the free “Grow me Instead” brochures. The more detailed “Grow Me instead” booklets, offered for sale at $2.00, were also very popular. Both of these publications can be viewed in beautiful color online at beplantwise.ca under the ‘Resources’ tab.
Please remember to bring something to enter in the parlour show. Lets continue to make a spectacular show with lots of sparkle. Go to the Monthly Parlour Show page to see all you can enter.
Set up Team is Val Lynch team #10 and Stephanie Walter Team #9 will provide tea.
The meeting is on December 12, 2018 at St John’s Church Hall, Jubilee St. Doors open at 6 pm
