Fellow member and WASM VP and Blog Manager, Elaine Bacal, sent in the following about the Botanical Gardens:The Botanical Gardens is free on Friday, May 25th. Maybe some members would like to take advantage of that. Right now, there are 1000’s of tulips, just gorgeous, but next week, maybe the peonies will be in bloom. Also, there are 9 resident sheep way at the other end of the Gardens keeping the grass mowed. Eileen Miller, WASM Hospitality, sent in the following Botanical Gardens link:

For the Atwater Library Lunchtime Series, Peter McNally, McGill University professor and royal family enthusiast, gives a talk to mark VICTORIA DAY.
Sharron Gallagher sends in this: “I am sending this to WASM members to ask for support for the nursing profession that has had an important role in the history of Montreal as well as the quality of health care. By erecting a sculpture of nurses in a public place, St Mary's alumni [I am a member] wishes to recognize ALL nurses, past and present who have contributed and continue to enhance patient care of Montrealers since Jeanne Mance. We need your help spreading the word and contributing whatever you can to help get this sculpture erected so people will learn and remember what our nurses did and continue to do”.     To donate you can also call Catherine McIninch Murphy at 514-849-1503.
