Horticultural society presents awards at annual potluck

HARRISTON - The Harriston and District Horticultural Society held its annual potluck and awards night on Nov. 28 at the festively-decorated Harriston Train Station.

President Jean Anderson gave a run down of the many events held over the course of the year, and thanked all who gave volunteer hours to the society and who took the time to help make Minto beautiful.

The photography competition entries were on display, as well as the photos of the Gardens of Month and the Backyard Treasurers, both of which were very popular again this year.

Willa Wick gave a presentation on Christmas Traditions in other parts of the world which was followed by the installation of officers for 2019 by past president of District 7 Jane McDonald.  

Linda Campbell announced that the society’s bursary recipient is Reid Lobsinger, who is attending the University of Guelph in an agriculture program.

Alice Douglas finished off the evening with the presentation of awards:  

- Rhoda Cameron Memorial Award for Best Design at the May flower show went to Paul Judge.  Judge also won the People’s Choice award for the best table centrepiece at the meeting;

- Golden Trowel Award for the highest points total in all shows was won by Mary Anne Connell;

- Silver Trowel for second most points was won by Linda Campbell; and

- Dorelene Anderson was the recipient of the Mildred Newman Award for the Best Design at the August flower show.
