There are wonderful people in Tumbler Ridge. The weekend proved that probably drinking lends itself to stupid actions, not that there would be any drinking at Grizfest. Hartford Gardens again has been vandalized. Last year it was arson. This year it was the ruining of the flowers in the willow basket and fortunately the willow basket was not destroyed. It was upset and parts of it scattered. Well, Shirley Lausch has rescued the basket by bringing us some of her lovely flowers and now the basket looks great. Thank you Shirley, on behalf of the Garden Club for helping to make our gardens look wonderful.
