Details are still coming in, but the ECW Garden Party was a terrific success, raising more than $50,000 for the Camden Street Learning Garden! That's a record for the ECW, and our efforts ensure that the garden will be getting their new outdoor kitchen! Thank you to all the ECW members who created this fun event, and to all of St. Michael's for making it such a success. More to come in the June Chronicles of Canterbury!
