Hi Gardeners:

The next meeting of the Champlain Park Garden Club is Tuesday, October 9th when our speaker will be Joan Johnston from Peter Knippel Nursery. Joan will guide us through the proper and the not-so-correct methods of pruning – always a welcome lesson. The meeting will start at 7 p.m. in the field house in Champlain Park, corner of Cowley and Clearview.

Laurie would like to remind you about submitting photos to her (lfagan@magma.ca) for our annual club slide show in December when members present some of their favourite shots from the past year.

Hope to see you there
