11:30 - 2:30

Our annual Mid-Summer Social ...

was held on Saturday, August 11 from 11:30 until 2:30pm under partly cloudy skies. About 70+ people including some on the wait list attended. A great time was had by all. The hot dry spell, which has been both a blessing and a curse for our gardeners, has at least temporarily come to an end. Luckily for us the predicted showers held off until mid-afternoon. However, all of us welcomed the rain and kept fairly dry under the trees.

Picnic under the trees.

As usual, there was a fantastic feast, complete with yummy hotdogs with all the fixings (cooked by our intrepid BBQ Queen, Cathy W. - thank you, Cathy!), snacks, cold drinks, a wide variety of baked goods, including a beautiful chocolate cake from 6-mile Bakery, and fruit.

What brings you joy?

There was a draw for two passes to Butchart Gardens. Thanks to Judy A. for arranging the passes plus a variety of flower seed packages.

Thanks to Dianne W. for putting together a map of special plants/crops of interest in the Gardens and to Amity Skala for being our official photographer at the event.

Last, but not least, a big thank you to those who contributed to the feast, the set-up, and the clean-up. Without your contributions the event would not have been such a success!
