Get growing in Gordon Head

Gordon Head Gardening Club hopes to keep growing as it celebrates six decades with a party

Gordon Head Gardening Club hopes to keep growing as it celebrates six decades with a party.

“We’ve invited people that don’t come to the club anymore. There are about 15 of them coming that are over 90,” said president Heather Atkinson. “We’re going to honour them and have a little panel where we interview four members from each decade.”

Questions include: “What fun things do you remember that they did back then and what was the most popular flower? What was all the rage back then?” she said.

“In Gordon Head it’s anything that the deer won’t eat,” she added with a laugh.

The celebration will include a 60th anniversary photograph of the entire crew, followed by cake and tea.

Anyone interested in gardening is welcome. Atkinson says the gardening club is a great way interact with new people.

“We need some younger members,” Atkinson said. “I’ve met some wonderful folks. They’ve all got great senses of humour and they love gardening.”

The party is Saturday, April 12 at Gordon Head United Church hall, 4201 Tyndall Ave. at 2 p.m.

 

RSVP to Heather Atkinson at 250-598-2302 or email heatheroa@shaw.ca.
