The Ripley and District Horticultural Society's youth club met Saturday, Feb. 15, at the Ripley Library, to work on posters for the Ontario Horticultural Association's poster competition.

The theme is "Plant a Garden, It's Good for You," and it must be displayed on a 12-inch-by-18-inch piece of paper. The poster can be done in any medium - crayon, pencil crayon, paint, black-and-white, etc.

The artist's name, phone number and grade must be printed in pencil on the back of the poster. 

The competition is open to everyone, ages five to adult. Cash prizes are $10 for first; $8 for second; and $5 for third.
Posters may be brought in at the March Break Program sponsored by the Ripley and District Horticultural Society, March 12 at 1:30 p.m., at the Ripley-Huron Community Centre. 

This promises to be a fun event which includes Garden Bingo and starting plants from seeds, in other words "Growing Things."

All are invited to participate in both the poster competition and the March Break Program.
