Announcements and events coming up

I had the pleasure of talking to Marjorie Willison this week. Although she recently retired from Chebucto Connections, Marjorie is busy as ever. She’s spent some of her time writing a book called “Come Grow With Us: A Family Guide to Growing Vegetables.

” The book will be launched Thursday, August 12 at 7pm during a celebration at the Urban Farm on Rockingstone Road and Ardwell Ave. You can purchase a signed copy at the event and also tour the garden. There may be garden produce for sale too.

The Spryfield and District Business Commission is holding a fundraiser golf tournament for the Spryfield Boys and Girls Club. It will take place at Indian Lake Golf Club on Thursday, August 21 at 2pm. Call Eric at 477-6621 to reserve a spot.
