Attached is the Star Garden Maintenance schedule for the rest of the season. Please contact Kathy Hettel if you have any questions.
Star Garden for the rest of the season
There are several plants left from the plant sale that are now at the Star Garden. Anyone is welcome to have them.
They will only be there for one week. They are awaiting a good home.
The Garden Committee
I would like to thank everyone for participating in the plant and yard sale. It was a successful fundraiser. The profit was $827.
Thank you to all the people who dug up your plants, scoured your closets and sheds for the yard sale, and the volunteers both Friday and Saturday to set up, sell, box up all the priceless treasurers, and transport leftover plants to the star garden.
A special thanks to Gale Kladitis and Cindy Barnhart for their help making the signs. Also, to Polly Zimmerman for her trip to secure and transport annuals for the sale.
It is always a fun club and community project. We all work so well together and your help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!
Please see the attached Plant & Yard Sale Volunteer Sign-Up Sheet for this Saturday.
