Grimsby Garden Club April 15 2020

April 15 2020

The Niagara Region recently declared a state of emergency in response to COVID-19. Grimsby Mayor Jeff Jordan participated in this declaration.   The Directive is HERE.  Mayor Jordan's video message is HERE  

On April 1st, the Town of Grimsby announced the closure of town facilities until further notice.  The indication is that this will be in place at least until mid-May.  Rentals of town facilities are cancelled through mid-May. 

The impact is that the April meeting of the Grimsby Garden Club is cancelled and the Grimsby Garden Club Plant Sale, scheduled for May 16th at the Livingston Centre, will not take place.  

The Board is looking at options for a later plant sale.  We would like to get members' garden plants to each other in the spirit of sharing and caring.  We'll keep you up to date on Grimsby Garden Club developments as they arise.

Our Trillium Program preparations are still underway.  We will be able to carry out judges training and orientation via teleconference and webinar, and judges will assess gardens individually rather than in pairs.  We hope you will be part of the program - as a nominator, a judge, and as a nominated garden owner.  We think this will bring some enjoyment of gardens and gardening during this summer.  Thanks to our Trillium Sponsors!

We appreciate your support.
