Valuing Your Treasures

Valuing Your Treasures

Although any gardener would be proud to call the collection of plants above her (or his) treasure, there are other treasures – art or antiques – that have sometimes been preserved by families over many many years.

In a bid to engage members’ attention and have a little fun while raising funds, the Chester Garden Club exec has invited Wayne Cameron, a specialist in antiques, to preside at an event during which members can bring their cherished pieces of art or antiques for a professional evaluation. Wayne is the well-known owner of “Cameron’s Fine Art & Antiques,” in Chester. The fun includes a cash bar and the opportunity to observe the variety of treasures brought in by fellow members.

The evaluation process is open to members of both the Chester Garden Club and the Basin Gardeners. The entry fee of $15 ($12 for early birds) entitles the ticket-holder to bring a maximum of two items for evaluation.

This special occasion is bound to be both informative and entertaining. It will take place on October 5th, from 6:30 to 9:30 pm, at the St Stephen’s Parish Community Centre. For tickets or further information, call 273-2193 or 275-5019.
