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.
