At long last, together again! Just as the weather is turning colder, we have some warm news! After 21 long months of foregoing our monthly program nights, Dunnville Horticultural Society (DHS) is set to resume meeting in person. And to kick things off with a bang, we welcome back our members for our annual general meeting on November 25, 2021. We will meet at the Dunnville Optimist Hall at 7 p.m. Although we will have to forego our normal potluck dinner, light refreshments will be served. A special speaker is also on tap, along with great giveaways. COVID vaccine passport and masks will be required. We look forward to welcoming back our members!
Many of you may also have noticed our latest addition to Dunnville’s landmarks. In the East Bridge Garden, we have erected a gorgeous red lighthouse feature. This decorative lighthouse is dedicated to Dunnville’s citizens – past, present, and future. It also pays homage to the Grand River, Lake Erie, and our nautical roots. We hope it will stand as a sentinel and gateway marker to Dunnville for many years to come.
Finally, I wish to thank the 2021 DHS board of directors who worked tirelessly to hold things together for our club throughout the pandemic: Susan Emery, Nelly Engelage, Petra Kruis-Daly, Angela Latham, Wray McLean, Sharon Sykes, and Debbie Thomas. In 2022 we welcome the following new board members: Mike Lessard, Melanie Ruigrok, and Jordan Wagter. We are looking forward to resuming our regular activities in 2022!
