We had a fabulous time at our Christmas Luncheon at the Sunshine Coast Gulf Course. We enjoyed great food, good company, door prizes and some fun music. Hope everyone had a wonderful time and left with full tummies and special memories.
This event was cancelled as we did not reach the minimum amount needed.
We must book and pay a deposit for the bus costs to reserve this special tour, so confirm and pay for your seat at our General Meeting Monday, October 30th. If more members attend, costs will go down! Bus holds up to 48 people. Tickets are $32 for Garden Club members and $37 for non members. Sechelt Garden Club is subsidizing some of the cost. This cost is based on a group of 30 and does not include ferry costs and meals.
Ferry will depart at 2:45pm from Langdale and return on the 9:45pm ferry later that evening. A bus will pick us up at Horseshoe Bay terminal and drive us back after the Tour. Garden gates open at 4:30pm so this gives us 4 hours in the gardens, with time to have a meal (or bring your own) and visit the gift shop.
The Sechelt Garden Club Annual General Meeting (AGM) is scheduled for November 27, 2017, 7:00pm. We encourage all members to attend as we will be voting on a new President for the Club. Cathy Belfry will be completing her 2 year term at the end of 2017, so we hope someone will step-up for this very important and greatly appreciated position. If you or someone you know is interested, please Contact us.
The daffodil bulbs are from Van Noorts. They are King Alfred daffodils which are large, good quality, deer resistant and naturalizing. Bags of 20 bulbs are only $10.00. Please let your friends, neighbours and relatives know that they can purchase these bulbs from Garden Club members.
Purchase yours now while supplies last. Contact us to arrange pick-up/delivery/payment.

Seaside Centre – Sechelt | 11:00am – 2:00pm
Our 50th Anniversary celebration was a HUGE success! Thank-you to all who participated in organizing; set-up, take down, flower arrangements, food (so much food!), seed planting and care, decorating and most of all, those that visited and shared this very special time.
Featured article in the Coast Reporter:
What a memorable year 2017 is for all of us in Canada and for our Sechelt community!
It is the 50th anniversary of the Sechelt Garden Club, and an open house has been organized for Saturday, June 17, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Seaside Centre. A sourwood tree, renowned for its colourful blossom and foliage, has already been planted in the grounds of the Seaside Centre where a plaque has been inscribed to commemorate this auspicious occasion, and one which coincides with Canada’s birthday 150 years before.
