Happy 85th Anniversary

85th Anniversary Dinner & Awards Night

Win a beautiful centrepiece!
It has been a year of exceptional speakers, fabulous garden tours and outstanding flower and design shows. Let’s cap it off with a celebration to mark an incredible milestone. The North Toronto Horticultural Society will be celebrating its 85 th Anniversary at our annual November Members’ Potluck Dinner and Awards Night. The North Toronto Executive and the Anniversary Dinner Committee have been hard at work to make this year’s gathering extra special.

As always there will be plenty of food (everyone is welcome to bring a favourite dish). Our top Hort and Design winners will be honoured. We'll have a look back through the years and there will be some exceptional prizes. And don't forget the surprise entertainment.  It will get your toes tapping.  To accomodate all these activities, the Annual Members' Digital Show will be moved to January.
