Message from the Chairperson


Saturday June 18th turned out to be a perfect day to host the 17th annual garden tour.

With four hundred guests enjoying nine gardens from Ajax, Whitby and Oshawa; over $21,765.75 was raised in support of Hearth Place Cancer Support Centre.

The gardeners were an absolute delight. All worked very hard on perfecting their gardens which was truly appreciated by all the guests.

When the artists and musicians join in the gardens, the ambience can only be described as elegant.

To all the volunteers that took valuable time out of their weekend schedule, a big hug. They are the valued front line faces that represent this tour.

This was a huge undertaking by the committee and congratulations go out to such a professional group. I thank all for their contributions and hard work in making this event such a phenomenal success.
