Fall Schedule Update

The first autumn meeting of the Club took place in September, on the grounds of the new St Stephen’s Parish Community Centre. The focus of the evening was a “plant and seed exchange” among members, an activity that raised over $200 for the Club. That event was followed by an “info exchange” at the October meeting, held at the United Baptist Church Hall, when Herb Fraser presented an overview of gardening books that he considered were most relevant to maritime gardeners. A list of some of the books he discussed can be found in another section of this blog.

The Annual General Meeting of the Club is scheduled for 7:30 pm, November 17th , and will be held at the United Baptist Hall in Chester. The guest speaker will be Logie Cassells, who will present an illustrated talk on ornamental grasses.

The Club will wind up the calendar year with a Christmas party on December 5th, but not before an intrepid group of members participate in the annual ritual of decorating the Chester bandstand on the morning of November 29th. The traditional green boughs and white lights are hung on the railings as the Club’s contribution to beautifying the village for the festive season. The photo shows work in progress at last year’s event. Following the decorating session, tradition demands that participating members are treated to hot mulled wine and snacks.
