Calling all Leprechauns! It is almost time to get your green on! If we can’t quite see green in our lawns and gardens, then our green sweaters, hats and gloves will have to suffice. We have made it through the coldest months with those short daylight hours and now we can look forward to milder temperatures and the reawakening of spring.
Our Dunnville Horticultural Society (DHS) had a wonderful program night on February 21, welcoming Dr. Janice Gilbert who shared much on getting rid of those invasive phragmites. Fifty-two people signed in to share in a great evening. Tina Janssen donated three bunches of Siberian irises, won by Betty Balanger, Rose Marie Bosak, and Tony Daly.
Next month is our Early Bird Draw for members who buy their 2019 membership on or before March 21, so make sure to come early to do so. At just $10 ($15 for a couple), it is great value. Our guests that evening will be Troy and Kelly Bowers of Moodie Bees, and Natalie Hahn speaking “All About the Bees”. This important topic is sure to be of interest to many.
At DHS we are gearing up for a busy spring of planting, weeding, and tending our town flowerbeds. We are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers. Join us and see what our club is all about. You are sure to make new friends and learn something great … not to mention enjoy some excellent refreshments.
So, come on out to our next Program Night! The DHS meets every third Thursday of the month at the Optimist Club Hall, 101 Main St. from 7 to 9 p.m., or visit us online at our Facebook page or website
