It was a picture perfect day for the
6th Annual Slugfest at the Tahsis Community Garden.
Many thanks to Catherine for overseeing the craft table and prizes for the Slug Hunt, and volunteer helpers Lynda and Jesse for lending a hand with set up, tear down and slug count. Kim provided impromptu garden tours to residents, Silvie made a big platter of fruit kebobs, Juanita came by with Dudley the Indian Runner Duck and Rita made sure the grass was neat and trim for our Tahsis Days event. Kudos to Allison and Karli for some great photos, and Lauren's donation of potato chips and freezies. Again thank you Janet for this year's creation of Norman the Slug for our top hunter.

The greatest contribution to the success of the day goes to the many children, parents, grandparents, and aunties & uncles who turned out to hunt slugs, paint flower pots, and enjoy the community garden.
The kids had fun finding slugs, burning off some energy, and playing on the woodchip piles. They got to meet Aubrey's new rabbit, say hello to Dudley Duck, sing Happy Birthday to Willow and celebrate with a slice of birthday cake.
A nice easy afternoon, thank you everyone for coming out.
