The group has planned a new fund raiser, a Geranium Sale, scheduled at 9 p.m. May 12, at the former depot on Main Street. Club members will sell large six-inch plants in pink, red, white and salmon for $7 each. To pre-order, contact any garden club member or call 458-7237 or send a request via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The flowers will be ordered from Bean Creek Garden Center on April 18. Profits will be used to benefit the downtown beautification projects.
The club is also planning a community plant exchange again this year, along with a container garden competition. Details will be made available at a later date.
