SUNSHINE COMMITTEE

 

Our society is all volunteer run and we have several committees that are tasked with leading various activities (plant sale, flower shows, awards, workshops, etc.) We also like to acknowledge major events in our members lives and to that end, we have a Sunshine Committee who send messages of congratulations for births, anniversaries, significant birthdays etc., as well as sending messages of condolence to families at the death of one of our members.  If you know of an event that should be acknowledged, please contact either our president or the Sunshine Committee.

The objectives of the Russell and District Horticultural Society are to encourage interest and education in horticulture by:

 

- holding meetings and educational workshops;

- encouraging the planting of trees, shrubs and flowers in our community;

- promoting outdoor beautification;

- arranging field trips, competitions and exhibitions related to horticulture;

- distributing seeds, plants, bulbs, flowers, trees and shrubs;

- promoting the protection of the natural environment;

- promoting the circulation of horticultural information through any media;

- stimulating an interest in the study of horticulture in gardeners of all ages.
