Our first meeting of the year, held January 21st, was well attended. Guest speaker was LINDA WALL. Her topic was "UNDERSTANDING BATS" - Practical Tips to Enjoying the Benefits of Bats on your Property.
Linda developed a personal appreciation for bats as a young person growing up in a very old "airy" farmhouse in north west Ontario. After starting a career in natural resources management Linda continued to pursue building bat boxes, nests and roosts for unsuspecting friends. Linda has many bat houses across Northern Ontario that have not attracted bats so knows first hand what not to do to attract bats to your property.

The February 5th meeting of the St. James Flower Arrangers featured England, "High Tea", a tea cup arrangement with saucer included.
The following images exhibit the amazing talent and creativity this group of fun loving ladies have.
The demonstration was presented by Sharon.  It
features Australia, "Outback”, which is to be worked predominantly with succulents/cacti and waxflowers. I look forward to the creations of this demo from next month's meeting.
