The Friends of Summerland Gardens Society held their 21st anniversary tea at the Ornamental Gardens on Saturday. Mayor Janice Perrino, right, presented society president Charlotte Leaming, left, and secretary Dorthea Atwater a cheque for $7,500 from the District of Summerland. The society has worked hard at preserving the gardens as an attractive feature of the community. They are currently raising money to implement a water conservation project, expanding the water wise gardening principles already in place. They wish to lead by example and to promote and inspire all gardeners to use water wise principles. They have demonstration beds in place and will be conducting workshops in the future. Volunteers are always needed to join the team.
