On Sept. 19 an awards dinner was held at the Drop-In Centre. It was a delicious meal catered by the Drop-In staff and assisted by mothers of Guides and Brownies.

Category winners were: Flowers – Betty Adam; Vegetables – Joy Bruca; Flower Arrangements – Catharina Hettinga; Fruit and Seniors Award – Martha Lovlie; Thread Arts – Linda Davies; Handicrafts – Christina Leeder; Culinary Arts – Lorna Diggle; Digital Photography – Darrell Carrigan; Conventional Photography – Theresa Robinson; Children’s Award – Kayla Leeder; Teen Award – Tiffany Kowalchuk; Adult Award – Joy Bruca; Novice Award – Michelle Service.

During the evening there was a silent auction which saw much competition and activity as bidders tried to out-do one another, which made it very profitable for the Horticultural Club as we have very low funds at this time of year.

Laura Schwieger – granddaughter of Martha Lovlie, won the beautiful Deacon’s bench, which was made and donated to us by Rheuben Giebelhaus, while other winners included Kay Fulton, Judy Frayn, Betty Adam and Barb Belts.

Much appreciation is extended to everyone who helped in any way at the show and during the season. Check the Community Calendar (Page 2) at the beginning of November for information about our annual meeting, potluck supper and election of executive members for 2009.

We hope some new people will step forward and help to boost our membership even if they know little about horticulture. There are other subjects such as handicrafts, baking and [preserving, photography along with classes for children and teens in which we can encourage them to participate, as they will be our future exhibitors.

Horticulture has been part of the country fairs and shows in Rimbey since 1922 and we would like to see them continue.
