Plant Sale Note from Nancy

Wednesday will be our last meeting before the Plant Sale on May 10. If you have any empty pots that you would like to provide for members that dig items from their gardens, please bring them to the meeting this Wednesday. They do not need to be washed, but please put them in bags, as we do not want to track dirt into the Fire Dept. conference room.  It would probably be best to leave them in the lobby.

Also, the sign-up sheet for the plant sale will be circulated.  We still need people! Thanks to all who have volunteered in the past.  This year we have increased our order to over 2,200 plants.  In an effort to reach more customers, we distributed over 150 flyers to the people signing up for the Marduke plots.  Hopefully we will sell out once again. With many thanks to everyone who makes this happen!!   

If you are not able to make it to the meeting and would like to volunteer for the sale, please email with the times that you might be available.

Many thanks to all, Nancy
