as you leave the building, you can pick up your free plant courtesy of the NSACG (Rosy Milkweed - a favourite of Monarch Butterflies) from Pamela MacLean.
There will be an “EXPRESS” line for those who have already paid for their seats - this will help you choose a seat, look around and visit Vendors sooner! You can get an advance “ticket” by paying at the next regular club meeting (at the Tantallon Library on April 20, 2016) or by sending a cheque to Carole Ross, our Treasurer. Please allow time for the cheque to arrive - mail cheques by April 27th. The address is at the BOTTOM of this schedule. You DON’T have to pay in advance!! There is plenty of space - paying in advance is just helping us establish numbers of guests and streamline the registration that morning. There is no discount for paying in advance, as our $13.00 for members and $15.00 for non-members is already a super deal!
If you wish to pay in advance, here is the address for mailing your cheque -
St. Margaret's Bay Gardening Club

Hammonds Plains, NS B4B 1N2
