May 26, 2020 - PERENNIAL SALE! (Modified Plant Auction)
We need your help! You are all invited to participate in our modified plant sale on Tuesday May 26th. We need lots of donated plants for a successful sale! Take some time this weekend to thin out those overgrown perennials. Set aside what you are unable to use to donate to the sale.
For your convenience, there will be two locations for this perennial sale:
805 Frampton Lane (Betty Vick)
333 Shediac Road (Claudia Schaerer)
Members are asked to drop off plants in the driveway at one of these locations during the morning or afternoon on Tuesday, May 26th. If you are donating plants, please ensure that each plant is labelled with its name, approximate height that the plant will grow, colour of its flowers, whether it prefers sunny or shady location. Please send Claudia an email ahead of time indicating what types of plants, and approximate number you plan to donate. Prior to 4pm, she will share this information so that you will know what plants are available at each location.
All collected plants will be available for you to purchase between 4pm - 7pm. Social distancing must be maintained. We will have signage up, and we will be ensuring a minimum of 6' between members. Plants will be grouped according to price ($2.00 or $5.00 per plant, unless it is a very unusual or uncommon plant). Payment by cash only. Exact change is required to avoid money handling and exchange. All funds raised will go to our society.
Gerry Gillcash will be at Betty's while Laura Sarson will be at Claudia’s to answer any questions you may have. We will definitely miss Jim Steeves' auctioneering this year, but hope that this modified sale will at least help you find new plants for your garden.
See you there!
April 28, 2020 - Given the ongoing COVID-19 situation, our April potluck is cancelled. Hopefully we will be able to meet in May for our annual plant sale. The executive will decide in early May whether or not we will be able to go ahead with our May meeting.
In the meantime, stay home, stay safe!
March 24, 2020 (7pm) -
Our guest this month will be Conrad Allain from Transaqua. He will be speaking about the free compost/mulch products available from the City of Moncton.
Given the current local conditions, the executive has decided to cancel the March meeting scheduled for March 24th. We will decide in early April whether our potluck on April 28th will be cancelled.
We will take orders for club t-shirts and hats at our next meeting - whenever that is. We will try to have samples of the various sizes on hand, so that you can better decide which size to order.
In the meantime - stay safe. Keep an eye on your family, friends and neighbours - but remember to stay 2 meters apart!
