It's 2022 - Is it safe to come out yet?

As we begin our 98th year and the number of people who are fully vaccinated approaches 90%, meeting venues are starting to reopen.  The Town of Stouffville has just announced that they are opening their facilities at 50% capacity starting January 31.  With high hopes that we will be able to hold in-person meetings this year, we have asked the Town to confirm to us how many people will be allowed into Latcham Hall and under what conditions.  We’ll keep you informed.


In the meantime, our new gardening year has begun and we will be holding our first meeting of the year on Monday, March 21.  Unless things change dramatically before then, this will be an on-line Zoom meeting.  We will continue with on-line Zoom meetings until we are able to safely meet the Town’s requirements later this year.  Please note the day of our meeting has changed from Monday to Wednesday when we resume in-person meetings.  This is because the Stouffville Lions also use Latcham Hall for their Board meetings on Monday evenings. At the present time, the Town will allow only one group at a time to use the facility and they have given the Lions priority.  We have agreed to move our in-person meetings to Wednesday on the condition that once all restrictions are removed, our meeting night will return to the third Monday of the month.


Over the winter, we have been busy, lining up a full schedule of speakers, Stouffville Horticultural Society is hosting the District 5 Annual General Meetng on April 30.  Because of the advanced timeline required to plan and organize this large event and the continuing uncertainties surrounding covid requirements, the AGM will be held on-line via Zoom.
