Beautification

Thanks to all the members who contributed to the care of our gardens over the year with special thanks to Marilyn Elliott, Jenni Murrell, Eveline Teras, Joy Morley and Mona Rea, who also selects and orders our plant material. We would also like to thank our plant supplier, Lakeview Gardens in Lefroy for being so kind to us over the years with special plant pricing and good advice.

Have a look at the pictures of the flowerbeds our society is looking after.

Judith Rogers is looking after this beautiful
'Water Wise' flowerbed in the Arboretum, which is located at 1474 Shore Acres Drive (Hwy. 89 at the corner of 20th Sideroad in Gilford). The vibrant red tulips are planted in honour of Canada's military







The same garden show in the fall



Joan Harper took the initiative to enter the Water
Wise Garden into competition for the
'Community Improvement Award" and she is shown here flanked by Carol Dunk, Director of District 16 (at that time) and Eveline Teras (holding the award). Edna Caldwell, a past district director, donated this trophy to be awarded to a society with an outstanding project showing community improvement.






Joan Harper is looking after the Grass Bed in the Arboretum. It is breathtaking in the Spring with the tulips and the silvery grey of the grass.







The same bed in winter




The Perennial Flower Bed in the Arboretum is taken care of by the Membership at large. It was shortened a bit in 2008 and reworked as it had become rather overgrown.
This spring picture gives promise of what is to come.

Mona Rea is looking after the two flowerbeds in front of the Churchill Community Center, 6322 Yonge Street, where we are holding our monthly meetings, so we get to enjoy these flowerbeds a lot .







This flowerbed is to the right of the front door






Mona Rea takes care of the flowerbed on the slope facing Yonge Street (Hwy 11) in front of the Churchill Comnmunity Centre. You have to be well balanced to do it or you will end up on the highway
