After what seemed an endless winter, The Garden club of Richfield Spring members hit the ground running this Spring. As soon as the snow melted, and the weather broke, our community flower boxes and planting areas were cleared and prepped for planting, by Barb Crandall.
Our April dinner meeting took place at PK’s Pub In Herkimer. Eighteen club members attended, we had a lovely and enjoyable evening. We enjoyed home baked cakes for desserts courtesy of Diane Jouben and Barb Crandall.
The ways and Means committee will start planning for our annual June Plant Sale Fundraiser. This year our plant sale is scheduled for June 3rd, in front of the Richfield Springs Public Library from 9:00 AM to 2:00 P.M. (In the event of rain the sale will take place in the Library’s Memorial Room)
In addition to annuals, perennials and herbs, there will be home baked goods, hand crafted item raffles and a burickobrack boutique table.
There will be a presentation by Master Gardener Ms. M. Woodrow.
All plants for the sale are provided by Club members from their gardens. Raffles are hand crafted by club members and some donated by local business. Baked goods are made and donated by club members using wholesome fresh ingredients.
We look forward to seeing and greeting community members and friends from other garden clubs at the plant sale. Watch out for our ad in the Penny-saver and posting in local business.
