Garden Club holds elections

The North Thompson Valley Garden Club held annual elections at their November meeting last Sunday

The North Thompson Valley Garden Club held annual elections at their November meeting last Sunday.

Elected for the next term are:

President – Franz Friesinger

Vice-president – Margaret Houben

Secretary – Liz Gilbertson

Treasurer – Anne Cameron

Also chosen were chairpersons for the various committees:

Community Garden – Liz Gilbertson

Seedy Saturday (April) – Susan Garland

Plant Sale (May) -Anne Cameron

Fall Social – Liz Gilbertson

The program committee will be changed this coming year.  Instead of having a committee to organize the programs, it will be discussed briefly at each meeting to ensure greater input from those attending the meetings.

Several suggestions were discussed at the November meeting, including making a “planting by the moon” calendar that can be sold as a fundraiser.

Those wanting to make suggestions about possible speakers or workshops, should present them at an upcoming meeting.

The next meeting will be a Christmas pot-luck on December 16, at noon, at the North Thompson Volunteer Centre.

A reminder to all Barriere and area residents: everyone is welcome to join the North Thompson Valley Garden Club regardless of your gardening experience.  Membership is just $10 per year.
