Our last program night of 2017 was held in November and featured our annual pot luck celebration,
annual Salvation Army food drive,  and 4 season photo contest.  Highlights of 2017
were shared with members in the form of “12 firsts for DHS”.  A fun and bountiful penny sale was
enjoyed by members, with all items donated by local businesses. Proceeds raised will go
towards beautification projects in Dunnville.

The 2018 board of directors was sworn in as follows:  returning President Debbie Thomas, VP Deb Zynomirski,
Treasurer Kim Christoff, Secretary Petra Kruise-Daly, Directors Margaret Bottrell, Gloria Hunter, Wray Mclean, Denise
Richardson, Marilyn Stavinga, Ian Steel along with new directors Nelly Engelage and Lynn Loney.
Although no program was held in December, the board has been busy planning 2018. Highlights will be announced next month.

DHS monthly programs resume January 18th, 7pm at the Optimist hall (doors open 6:30).
Guest speaker Lindsay Stephens (Haldimand County Public Library Community Outreach Co-ordinator) will provide
an overview of all “the resources available for Gardeners” at Haldimand’s libraries.  Following Lindsay,  a returning favorite
 Lester Fretz will provide fresh, innovative ideas on using recycled materials “Recycling Your Garden”.  Lester will be followed by
Gloria Hunter “How to make and use Kambucha for Health”.  There will be a Q and A period following the presenters.

DHS invites you to attend our programs the third Thursday monthly to enjoy timely speakers, refreshments, draws
 and to meet a very friendly and dedicated group of volunteers. Being a member is not a requirement to attend. However,
memberships are available anytime at a very reasonable annual amount of $10 per person or $15 a couple, proceeds enable
 us to fund and complete new projects each year.
