Letty Barolet judged our Fall Flower and Vegetable Show – she thought it was smaller than last year’s and, yes, it was down by 7 exhibits and 2 exhibitors – still, with the weather we have had this year, I think we did fabulously well with 180 exhibits and 16 exhibitors – but judge for yourselves!!
Judging started promptly at 11 a.m. and a Social Tea with a Light Lunch ($5.00) was served at 12 noon. The Social Committee Lucy Valente, Betty Lou Flear, Ruth Matchett and Judith Matchett outdid themselves once again. Thank You.
Miriam King, Innisfil Examiner, commented: “You are the only indoor event I have to do to-day”, poor Miriam, the rain poured down the whole day.
Mario Rea won the Award for the Largest Spanish Onion and a Gift Certificate for $50.00 from Lakeview Gardens (right). Debbie Ryan, Mona Rea, Agnes More and Mary Brown (Flower Show Committee) by the onion exhibit. There was no doubt Mario’s onion was the largest – but we used the scale anyway. Mario’s onion weighed in at 1310g, Mary Brown’s at 704g and Agnes More’s at 604g.
Is this a battle between the sexes or a scene out of Star Wars????
Diane Sykes and John Craw both grew their zucchini at the Community Garden – I wonder what they used for fertilizer. Ritva Heath, entering the show for the first time, won a 2nd place with her Dahlia under 4″ and an Honorable Mention with her Dahlia over 4″ (left). A display of Herbs (right).
Lynn Schnitter won 1st place and Best in Show in Class A with her design “Tall and Slender”, a vertical design. Jenni Murrell won 2nd place (centre), Marilyn Elliott Honorable Mention (top right) and Eveline Teras won 3rd place (bottom right).
