july 12th updates

LWAB FOR July 12, 2019

Good afternoon:

Todays lunch is brought to you by the Letters “TNR” for True North Rotary. This amazing group comes in 3 to 4 times a year to serve and hang out with us at Lunch with a Bunch. Please give them all a warm round of applause.

If you get a chance, please walk through our garden. With the weather being what it has been, I think that things are coming along. The plants in the green house have come along. The tomatoes are coming along and starting to ripen. If you go on our website www.yksenior.ca you can see what the progress is. We need to thank Shirley McGrath and Ben Nind for helping and taking on the Garden this year.
