On Saturday the Orono Horticultural Society held their annual membership drive. This year food items were collected for the Clarington East Food Bank. Board members Andrea Hester, treasurer; Carol Bailey, vice-president; Joan Osmok, Shelley Etmanskie and Aimie Harris, secretary, held samples of the early bird draws with proceeds going to the food bank. This Thursday, March 23 be sure to attend the OHS first meeting of 2023 at the Durham County Senior’s Lodge. There will be different prize baskets and a silent auction in support of the Clarington East Food Bank. Remember to bring your non-perishable food donation. Thank you everyone, the OHS collected 215 pounds of food during Saturday’s membership drive.
