The Peterborough Garden Show
Oops, not this one... remember this?
The poor thing met its untimely (or timely) demise, and so our fearless co-ordinator, Sandy, engaged the talented carpentry class at FLEMING COLLEGE and their teacher Scott Fleming.
CHEMONG HOME HARDWARE generously provided the materials and four of these very creative students built us a new one.
These talented students, (left to right) Ed Gaudaur, Darren Mills, Peter Charles and Steve Ecclestone designed and built this charming ticket booth that looks like a garden shed.

They taught 3 of our show volunteers how easily it comes apart, and McWilliams Moving and Storage kindly delivered the pieces to be stored for the show.
We took a dozen of Jen's famous "maple-bacon-buttertarts" to say a big thank you to the fellows for this great addition to our show... (thanks, Jen)
Here it is - in pieces - waiting for some paint and then set-up day.... come and see our new addition and admire the talents we cannot wait to show you.
UPDATE BELOW ! Here is our dedicated paint crew...
