Saturday SEPT 7: Bus’n’BBQ

It’s our unique twist on “BnB” 🙂 This year, our annual Members’ BBQ event will feature a local woodland-theme bus excursion (9AM-1PM) preceding the traditional lunch and social gathering (1PM-3PM). That’s pretty great in itself, but even better is that there will be no additional cost to members riding the bus tour. The BBQ will once again take place at Grey-Sauble Conservation Aboretum just south of Owen Sound. Details and registration coming in a few days. Plan to be there Saturday, Sept.7th, for a delightful and interesting day!
