who are suffering human rights abuses.

You are invited to drop in
to the Old Sanctuary at Midhurst United Church
Tuesday December 6 any time between 3:30 – 7:00 PM
to participate in the annual, Write for Rights letter-writing campaign.
Case studies, sample letters, writing materials, and postage
will all be provided.

Garden Tour – Life in the Garden took place Saturday July 9

Garden Tour Report

Well, it’s done……

Thank you to all the garden owners for allowing 150 people to traipse through their gardens.

Then thanks to the ticket sellers, volunteers in the garden and volunteers who helped with the meal preparation and church set-up on Friday and then the Saturday volunteers who helped in the kitchen and then helped clean up.

Then thank you to our committee of….

Lynda Johnson – who organized the silent auction….

Donna O’Brien – who had her garden on display…

Jean Varep – who was our awesome leader…. Jean got the gardens, was in charge of ticket sales, got all the volunteers and then helped in the kitchen when she had nothing else to do….

Altogether, including the $528.00 from the Silent Auction and plant sales from Brian Morris, we raised $4400.00

Report Submitted by Liz Stiff.
