AGM and Strawberry Social: Sunday June 23, 2019

All OSRBG members are invited to attend the Annual General Meeting on Sunday June 23, 2019 in Room 5, Royal Botanical Gardens, 680 Plains Road W., Burlington Ontario. The meeting starts at 2 pm but you are invited to arrive any time after 1 pm to socialize and interact with vendors. Following the business meeting, there will be more time for socializing over strawberry-themed treats. Contributions to the pot-luck are appreciated (finger food only, please). Also, if you have orchid plants to sell or trade, this is a good opportunity to do so.

Meeting Dates

Usually our meetings are on the 3rd Sunday of the month but sometimes this schedule has to be altered because of holidays or because RBG requires the room for other activities. Here is a list of upcoming meeting dates as far as they are known at present.
