  • Feature on the Kasugai Japanese Garden in Kelowna, BC

Greetings from the President

President’s message: Hello everyone! So here we are at the beginning of a new year that is starting out very similarly to the previous two with the ongoing pandemic. A club update:

Two members of the club executive are changing roles, Mary Jackson will continue on the executive board while Heather Freeman has volunteered to edit the newsletter. I wish to thank Mary for her years of newsletter production and editing and, thank Heather for volunteering to look after the newsletter.

In 2022, we hope to have regular meetings starting sooner rather than later! The first order of business will be planning the May plant sale. One idea is, as a group, painting small clay pots then filling them with succulents such as hens and chicks. Another idea was put forward, that judging by the turnouts of our petunia planting parties for the city planters, as a club we could get more involved with Community’s in Bloom here in Armstrong, perhaps beautifying a space in town for everyone to enjoy. This would be similar to what the Enderby club does with their Cornerstone Garden.

That’s all I’ve got for now! If you have other ideas, thoughts, criticisms, accolades, please give me a call: Glenn 250-546-9891.

Hope to see us together again soon! Glenn
