Many thanks to the Social Committee for volunteering their time



A day to remember!  Participants started to arrive at 9.15 and the last ones did not leave until late afternoon.  We worked at serious weed removal, remarkable hole digging, scientific soil and fertilizer mixing, followed by planting and replanting of small and large shrubs and numerous plants.  We also created a new long fence bed plus fresh garden edges that were carved along the north section. Much brush was also cut back.  

Luncheon comprised sumptuous sandwiches, salads and desert. The food was brought by all, and there was more than enough for the illustrious army that was assembled.  Here were 13 fine tennis players turned Garden Gurus for a few hours out of their busy lives and schedules.

A special Thank you  to our resident garden expert, Dale Birkett, integral to our amazing team which comprises Mike Wilson, Lisa Fincato, Phyllis and Mark Earley, Susan Wallace, Chris Sawicki, Gini Baldwin, Virginia Spence, Patricia McElhinney, Patti Templeton, Henry Brenzel and Merla McMenomy.  Shukie Halfon was unable to make this day but worked for us like a true Trojan, on all previous lead up days to this event.

Huge thanks for your collective pride, enthusiasm and vision!
