Great garden tour

Letter to the Editor


In this, the 14th year of the Rotary Garden Tour, the sun shone brightly.

Roads in town, and north and south of Ladysmith, were busy with garden pilgrims, maps in hand.

Nine owners displayed spectacular gardens. Many local businesses presented in the Aggie and provided prize draws.

Master Gardener Peter Dunn answered questions during continental breakfast.

Winners in the Rotary draw were C. Fong (patio heater), Ingrid Holmes (two Adirondack garden chairs) and Judy Bohay (two tickets to Buchart Gardens).

Ladysmith Rotary thanks all involved and wishes to tell you the needs our club supported during the past year.

We supported LIS students (to attend Vancouver Island Symphony), Ladysmith Little Theatre, Ladysmith Resources Centre, Christmas Hamper Fund, Food Bank, Festival of Lights, Ladysmith Celebrations,  Ladysmith Seniors Centre, Haven House, Mother Goose program, Cedar Theatre Group, Community policing, Diabetes Summer Camp, Arts on the Avenue, Ladysmith Baseball, Rotary World Community Service, KIVA  microcredit, Disaster Aid Canada.

Finally a big ‘thank you’ to The Chronicle for good publicity and for preparing the brochure.
