It may have been cold, snowy and blustery outside, Wednesday afternoon, but inside the meeting room at the Ripley-Huron Community Centre, everyone was concentrating on "Growing Things."

That was the theme for the Ripley Horticultural Society's youth club's March Break program for youth and seniors.

 A total of 36 children and 15 adults joined in playing Garden Bingo and starting seeds together.

Several members of the youth club also enjoyed displaying their beautiful artwork in the posters they made for the Ontario Horticultural Association's contest.The theme for the posters was "Plant a Garden, It's Good For You."
