Quadra Seniors Housing AGM will be this week, on Wednesday June 29th at the community centre 7pm in the main hall. The Board will have financial statements prepared for review by Society members. Please attend the general meeting to learn the details of the last year of construction. An election of Directors will take place at the meeting - several candidates have offered to stand for nomination, so have no fear of attending on account of the election!

A big thank you to the landscaping team: The greening at Seniors Housing has been ongoing since last fall under the supervision of Val’s Gardens. Here’s to the Garden Club for their donation of trees, shrubs, and the green roof plants as well as their many volunteer hours planting. Appreciation to Blaine Smith for volunteering his operating time and Bobcat to move soil on site. Kudos to Bill O’Connor for dragging the ground with his tractor several times to loosen the soil for seeding. To the rock pickers, rakers and seeders: cheers to Perry Johnston and Val Barr for donating many hours of their time, and big appreciation to Karin Mann and Eamon Simmons for all of their hard work. Gratitude to tenant Andy for looking after the watering of the new lawn areas.

The grass is green and growing with some small areas needing to be seeded in September. Through the summer general maintenance of the landscaping will continue to improve the site. A cash donation from the Garden Club will pay for the needed materials to complete the vegetable garden fencing.
