Amherstburg Fort Malden Horticultural Society holds annual general meeting

The Amherstburg Fort Malden Horticultural Society (AFMHS) has taken a look back at their most recent year.

The AFMHS held its annual general meeting (AGM) last Tuesday night in the community room at Amherstburg Community Services. President Janice Emery told the membership they would like to have teams to work on the various projects undertaken by the AFMHS, stating the executive needs additional support.

“We need you as volunteers on projects,” Emery told the members. “We need you to volunteer to be on micro-committees.”

Emery added one of those projects include decorating baskets in McGregor, similar to what occurred in the core area of Amherstburg.

The year has been a good one overall, Emery indicated.

“I think this year was an excellent year,” she said. “Things seem normal again post-COVID. Our members have been really well engaged this year. Our work has been noticed by residents.”

Among the initiatives in 2023 were the Open Garden Night, which Emery said was well attended, and the Deck the Planters decorating day, which she said is a personal favourite of hers.

There are approximately 55 members of the Amherstburg Fort Malden Horticultural Society and they meet monthly. There are also the extracurricular events that occur four to five times per year.

“The whole membership gets involved,” said Emery, adding seniors provide their support in other ways.

Emery added they are thankful to the Amherstburg community for its support and they wish everyone to “have a blessed holiday season and to be kind.”
