Bert Yeudall is a man of strength and wonder! Only a couple of years ago, Bert had a major health challenge, but true to the “power of life” and with the support of his wife, Bernie, and friends, he overcame. Now Bert is a force to be reckoned with.
You may recognize Bert at every member’s meeting, introducing the speaker for the evening. He has been a integral part of the Speakers Committee for the last 2 years. Well done, Bert! We have enjoyed the selection of speakers you and the committee have procured.
Bert and Bernie have been long standing members of the Edmonton Horticultural Society. Volunteerism is not a foreign word in the Yeudall household. Years ago, they were involved with the Edmonton Home and Garden Show representing the EHS. Their task was to show children how to plant and grow Scarlet Runner Beans. Such fun!
On the home front, Bert and Bernie’s garden is legendary. This is a garden that has been nominated several times for Front Yards in Bloom. Also, throughout the years this very same garden has witnessed many EHS members, wandering through it for Open Gardens. We not only have been astonished by Bernie’s creative vision, but also have admired Bert’s carpentry skills of arbour and bench constructions.
Bert Yeudall, a true Renaissance Man.
We are very proud to announce Bert Yeudall as May Volunteer of the Month! Bert received a 20 dollar gift card from Flowers on 50th and a Volunteer of the Month certificate.
