Activities and Volunteering A guide to our activities and events this year is on our 'book mark'. We give them out when you renew your membership - ask Ginny Thiessen for one at the membership desk. Lauren Doig will have a sign up clip board and we ask you to reserve your spots on upcoming activities such as providing treats for our social time at meetings, participating in the Home and Garden Show, the Plant Sale, Trillium Judging, and more. We ask for volunteers to maintain the beds at the Elm Street Garden, and to come out for the potting of the Town's hanging baskets in March at Trillium Hill.
