Membership and Chapter Coordinator

Helen HassardSpring has finally arrived, and I for one can’t wait to dig out my flip-flops. I’m sure most LO members have just one thing on their minds as we watch the mercury rise, and it doesn’t include golf, baseball and barbecues.

But do remember, as you gear-up for the busy season, to take some time later on in order to balance that work with a few hours of play. Here is the exciting line-up later in the summer that our dedicated volunteers and chapter staff have put together:


Upper Canada Golf Tournament: Fri., July 15 at Briar Fox Golf Club in Marysville.
Toronto Chapter Golf Tournament: The chapter will once again host its annual golf tournament. Details will be posted shortly at www.horttrades.com/chapter/toronto.


Toronto Baseball Tournament: Sun., Aug. 14 at Richmond Greens Sports Centre and Park.
Golden Horseshoe Golf Tournament: Wed., Aug. 17 at Willow Valley Golf Course.
Durham Chapter’s 5th Annual Barbecue: Thurs., Aug. 25 at T. Arnts Loam Supply, from 3 – 7 p.m.
Annual Waterloo Baseball Tournament: The chapter will once again run the popular baseball tournament. Details will be posted shortly at www.horttrades.com/chapter/waterloo.
Ottawa Golf Tournament: The chapter will announce details about its annual golf tournament shortly. Go to www.horttrades.com/chapter/ottawa for more information.


Golden Horseshoe Chicken Roast: Thurs., Sept. 15.
Georgian Lakelands Golf tournament: Fri., Sept. 23 at the Valley Course.
London Golf tournament: Fri., Sept. 9 at Pine Knot Golf Course.
Windsor Golf tournament: Sat., Sept. 10. The tournament location will be determined shortly and posted at www.horttrades.com/chapter/windsor.

All events have a range of sponsorship options available, so contact me at 1-800-265-5656, ext. 354, or helen@landscapeontario.com to be connected with the social event planning committees for each chapter.

Chapter events are always looking for volunteers so if you want to be where the action is, but you’re not overly sporty, get in touch with me at the email or phone number above.
