Fair’s theme revealed-read on

Submitted by Linda Lewis–We would like to congratulate Rick Grange as the Master Gardener 2007. To become a master gardener, the total points from garden flowers, fruit, vegetables and houseplants are added up. This year the fair will be held on Sunday August 3, so mark it on the calendar. The theme is “A Blooming’ Good Thyme”. This should be reflected in the themed items in the catalogue such as quilts, cards and drawings. If you wish to be a vendor, the theme will also be reflected on how your booth is decorated. Hope you haven’t thrown out your old worn-out garden shovel, because that is what the craft challenge is this year, A Painted Garden Shovel, take an old shovel and paint a scene depicting agriculture on the base. Any medium, such as acrylic, watercolour paint etc. can be use. There will be a category for children as well as for adults. And you don’t have to be an artist. Future challenges will be announced.
