Thank you to our plant friends who brought us perennials to sell at the Spring Plant Sale. Thank you to our workers who helped on Thursday, Friday and also the day of the sale.
We were pleased with the plant sale held last weekend. Considering the cold and rainy weather pattern that we were in for so many days, people brought in some very nice plants to sell. Our net profit was $647.00 which goes toward the construction costs in the lower level.
Mark your calendar for the 2014-Spring Plant Sale, the first Saturday in May! Happy Spring!
