There is a terrific line-up of speakers with an appealing range of subjects to amuse as well as educate. Unique bus trips have been planned and if you think bus trips are not for you, think again. It’s a delightful way to meet other Society members as well as a hands-on, entertaining way of learning about gardening.

This exciting year will also include our most important fundraisers: the 12th Annual Garden Auction and the 2nd Annual Beyond the Garden Gate Garden Tour. Our September 2017 speaker Mitchell Hewson was exceptionally popular. You, the membership, asked for us to organize one of his workshops and we have! You’ll hear more about all of these events and activities in the coming months so mark the dates on your calendar.

The Hort is a wonderful way of meeting like-minded people, expanding your knowledge and developing your gardening talents. It is a well-known adage that the effort you put into something reaps rewards that are considerably greater in return. With this in mind, please consider volunteering in 2018, especially with the public gardens that are so important to our town. We are an ambitious Society so help is always welcome, as many hands make light work.

It is my pleasure to serve as your President for 2018. I look forward to sharing a very interesting and remarkable year with you.
