MEMORIAL GARDEN: For those on the Memorial Garden committee and those who are interested in its progress, it has been decided to lay a 15-foot diameter cement circle in the centre of the garden area with curved paths leading out opposite sides. The cement has been ordered; it will be at least mid-September until it can be laid. So we have begun and will move ahead as we are able. Thanks for your interest.  – Colleen Kouwenberg –
