Mark your calendar, Sat. July 22, for this year’s
Flower and Photo Show and Afternoon Tea.
The theme is, of course, “CANADA 150 YEARS.”
We have streamlined the 2017 show by eliminating the Vegetable Division and therefore some of the
awards and certificates. The Floral, Design and Photo Divisions will remain almost unchanged.
So show our members and guests your talents in the Design Division by making an arrangement against a
mirror backdrop, or in a Tim Horton’s cup or with maple leaves and a Canadian flag. We have made it
easier for you to bring entries from your garden by holding our show a month earlier. We hope that drought will not be a factor! (Program details can be found in the show schedule included in the summer 2017 newsletter.)
You can bring a photo of a sea-side view, a shot of a native wild flower or a shot illustrating our heritage.
Please remember that photos must be 5 X 7 and matted to 6 X 8 and, of course, you must have taken the photo yourself.
All divisions will be judged by registered judges from the OHA and the photography business. All members are eligible to enter and to win cash prizes, ribbons
and trophies; and anyone can win one of the many door prizes donated by generous Ancaster businesses.
The viewing of entries and the afternoon tea will begin at 2:00 pm and the presentation of awards at
You can also participate by volunteering the night before to help set up the show, on the day of the show by preparing and serving refreshments, assisting judges, helping with the takedown or any of several jobs during the day. If you would like to help celebrate Canada’s 150 with us please call:

Floral designer, Liz Matheson, demonstrated floral design principles
at our June 20 meeting, using materials from her own garden, to show
that designing need not be expensive or complicated.
Her designs were raffled and taken home by delighted members.
Why not try your own design and enter it in our show!
