Build Day Success

Fantastic work was done on Saturday at the garden site
...and we got this year's raised garden beds built! Bouquets to all!

To the organizing committee members, hats off to you all! You kept the faith and the vision and saw it through to the build! Your many hours of dedication have paid off!

We had an outstanding turnout of volunteers with excellent cooperation and teamwork amongst community residents. On behalf of the organizing committee THANK YOU for making the months of planning come to life. Awesome job everyone!

From all of us to the the wonderful ladies who contributed the delicious baked goods, chili, veggies & dip and watermelon and who BBQ'd for us and kept us watered THANK YOU!

To the teams of men, women, boys and girls who helped in so many ways - putting up tents, constructing, measuring, laying out the beds, shoveling, raking, etc. THANK YOU for all your hard work!

Thanks very much to the young ladies for entertaining the children and assisting wherever they were needed.

Special thanks to Karen from Nosehill Library for leading an absorbing story time for the children!

We will send out a call for volunteers to help with cementing the last few fence posts early this week (June 7th or later) and another call for stretching the chainlink fence.
