Princeton Garden Club ready for another year

The garden club has had a successful summer and is raring to go!

The garden club has had a successful summer. In May, our book, “Yes, You Can Garden in Princeton!” was published and we have enjoyed a lot of sales and hope to sell many more of the books. Books are available at Billy’s Family Restaurant, the Winking Pedlar, Image Emporium, Everything Pets, Sunflowery Gallery, Princeton Farm and Garden Centre or by calling Doreen at 250-295-1577.

During this past summer the club participated in three garden tours in Kaleden and Cawston with the BC Iris Society. What amazing displays of this beautiful plant. We also shared a wonderful, but very hot day with our neighbours in the Keremeos Garden Club. We viewed three amazing gardens belonging to their members and then enjoyed a lovely lunch under the canopy of a massive weeping willow.

In June, we awarded two deserving Princeton High School graduates a scholarship of $250 each. We wish Alicia Myers and Clayton Jung good luck in their future studies.

Regular monthly meetings of the garden club take place on the second Tuesday of each month at 1 p.m., at the Seniors Centre on Angela Ave. Please note that the November meeting will take place on the third Tuesday, November 19. In December the club will meet for our Christmas party, at the home of Doreen Poulsen.

Five new members joined us for the October meeting. We are always looking for new members as well as new ideas—hope you consider giving us a try. We are interested in having speakers come and address our members after regular meetings and will welcome the public to attend.

In the near future, George Harry will put out a newsletter with timely hints and ideas for gardening in Princeton. The information will address topics in your garden suitable for the time and season. This is a trial edition and will be free of charge. Look for it at the locations where our book are sold.

The Princeton Garden Club wishes everyone a wonderful fall and winter and hope to meet many new people at our club meetings and events. Feel free to call either myself, Doreen at 250-295-1577 or Laila at 250-295-0740 if you have any questions or are looking for information.
