|A little rain was no matter for these shoppers. |
Just put on your wellies and pick your plants!
To my fellow committee members, Beatrice and Donna, thank you for the time you commit each year to making this event happen.
A warm hug to Melda and Anne for handing out coffee and muffins, keeping us fed and caffeinated throughout the day.
Many thanks for all the hands that shovelled manure including Bill, Cliff, Ben, and Tapani.

Thank you to Rhoda for selling raffle tickets and providing her beautiful rhubarb and dahlias.
Huge thanks to Gordon, Penny, Ginny, JoDee, Calleen, and Mari for a superb sales job.
For Ira who helped move picnic tables, once, twice, three times over and was our all round 'go to' guy.
Many thanks to Hayden for picking up a load of compost and to Jamie for providing the manure.
|They might be wet but they're having a great time|
We had a fantastic raffle once again this year and the prizes were stunning as always.
Thanks goes out to Melda for her hanging planter and the gift basket, to JoDee and Floyd for the eye catching birdhouse and to Bill Van Kempen of Van Kampens Nursery for the lovely iris.
A special shout out to Gail Kern and husband Joe of The Summer Garden in Argyle Shore. They made an astounding donation of several hundred tomato plants. There was Honey bunch, Juliet, Mountain Merit, Marbonne, Rose de Berne, Plum Regal and soooo many more. I think there was around 30 varieties in total. We all know how much I love my tomatoes so you know I brought a couple home with me to try out.
And finally, thank you to everyone who came and shopped. Your dollars keep our old one room Schoolhouse a vibrant part of the community.
Which reminds me.... the Rhubarb Social is on Tuesday, June 16 at 6pm. Location, the Canoe Cove Schoolhouse .... see you there?
