DHS had a delightful February, with a very informative presentation at our last Program night with Adam Chamberlin. He spoke about Dunnvilles tree program and our Carolinian Trees. Did You Know !! Haldimand has one of the biggest Paw Paw stands around. We are definitely lucky to have some amazing trees in our area. 

Up Next, the Lions Home and Garden show is fast approaching. Come on out to the Dunnville Arena on April 15 and 16th to see our Flower Power booth. Meet our board members, pick their brains, see all we have to offer and why not pick up a membership (10.00/adults and 5.00/jrs). We are an all inclusive, accessible, all ages group with a steadily increasing membership.
