Community Foundation Grant Approved
By Penny Dodd
The Lethbridge and District Horticultural Society has great news about Legacy Ornamental Garden in the new Legacy Regional Park at 13th Street and 40th Avenue N. We applied for a $12,000 grant from the Community Foundation of Lethbridge and Southwestern Alberta, and we have been awarded the full amount. The water feature in the ornamental garden is closer to becoming a reality. What a great Christmas present to us.
Our Legacy Park committee is inspired by this gift, and is hard at work finding ways to promote the park and to raise needed funds. The items in the attached file make up part of a folder being given to prospective donors to the garden.
The Hort Society board wants all our members to stay informed about developments on Legacy Park, and to encourage everyone to contribute to this legacy project. Throughout the winter, there will be opportunity to help at some of the public events being planned. In the spring, we will canvas you for specific perennials and annuals for some of the flowerbeds.
Another way you can help is with a financial contribution. If you would like to make a monetary donation toward the garden, anything over $20 qualifies for a 2017 tax receipt if it is received before the end of the year. If you miss 2017, you can always donate in a future year and get a tax receipt. Any amount is gratefully accepted. You can donate online, by clicking the Donate Now button at the top of this page. If you prefer, cheques (made out to Lethbridge and District Horticultural Society) can be sent to PO Box 11, Lethbridge, T1J 3Y3.
We are excited with all these developments, and hope you share our enthusiasm.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
