On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Wilmot Horticultural Society, here are words from our President:
"As we celebrate National Volunteer Week, I can only think of how privileged Wilmot Horticultural Society is to have so many dedicated and hard working volunteers in our Society. As we continue to move forward into the next fifty years with the same enthusiasm and love of community keep in mind that you are all appreciated not only for this week but all year. Thanks for all you do today, tomorrow and in the future."
