Dear Marg and Brian,

On behalf of Diana Baxter and the Garden Tour Committee, I would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to you, all your helpers, and Father Maurice for your warm welcome and collaboration to help make our Garden Tour such a success. The funds we raise through events like this are important contributions to our community garden projects.

We were especially pleased that the lunch on the lawn worked out so well for all of us. It was definitely an added value for our tour clients who were very complimentary about the food, the lovely setting, the convenience and the price. The church setting, with the beautiful stained glass windows and rich wood of the comfortable pews, worked perfectly for our 'Pollinator Garden' lecture. The rooms for our After-Tour supper were just right and allowed us to end the day with appropriate thanks to everyone.

We are very grateful for this opportunity to work together. We enjoyed the experience.


Thanks to everyone for helping to make our part in the Bloor West Garden Tour such a success. It was a wonderful day.

We are expecting a hundred dollar honorarium from the Parkdale Toronto Horticultural Society. They also will be planting some perennials in our gardens.

Financial Report - Total sales and contributions for the cafe $533.02

Total output for food for lunch $131.45

$ 401.57 (+ $100 from the Horts)

The suggestion has been made that half our profits go to St. Paul's Runnymede and the other half to a charity of our choice, possibly a newly begun Anglican endeavour within the Toronto Diocese.


FLOWERS AT THE ALTAR:Please, after you donate flowers to the altar provide your invoice to Shirley Buckley or accumulate for the end of the year for tax purposes.
