A perk of Canada Day at the Burlington Lawn Bowling Club was playing on great greenery, surrounded by beautiful gardens. Mary Ann Cook, the club’s landscaping chair recently won three 1st prizes and one 3rd prize in the Horticulture Society’s competition for her roses. Two of those prizes were for roses planted in our Club gardens. Another club member won a draw at the RBG for a free new edition rose “The Canadian Shield.” She donated it to the club and Mary Ann found it a new home across the greens, in front of the club house and in direct view of members in our photo-op.
