Staff at IC Greenhouses is hosting a retirement party and customer appreciation day Saturday, Nov. 29, from 

10 a.m. to Noon, at the greenhouses, located about two miles east of Highway 21 on the 6th of Huron-Kinloss.

After 30 years working in her beloved greenhouses, owner/operator Ida Piel is retiring.

Customers, friends and neighbours are invited to wish her well. And she would like to show her appreciation to all her customers who have been so loyal over her 30 years of operation.

Piel encourages customers who have gift certificates to use them up before closing day which is Dec. 20.

She says Kerri Hodgins has purchased five of the greenhouses and anticipates opening "Kerri's Country Gardens" in the spring. She is located on the Southline, between the Ripley Road and Bruce County Road 1.
