Summer is here and so, too, is the View Royal Garden Club’s Summer Show.

The annual exhibit featuring flowers, vegetables and fruits returns Saturday, June 20 to Shoreline Community Middle School at 2750 Shoreline Dr. for gardening enthusiasts and newbies alike.

The show runs from 1 to 3 p.m. Admission is $5 and includes door prizes.

Also happening for the club this month at Shoreline is its annual general meeting, June 24 at 7:30 p.m. Guest speaker Lindsay Kearns will present Preserving the Harvest, teaching home food preservation techniques from the traditional to the trendy.

A judged mini show at the meeting will feature exhibits from member gardens, plus visitors can pick up plants at the sales table. For more information on the AGM, call 250-220-5212. For all other inquiries, call 250-727-0076.
