Mark your calendar, you won’t want to miss this sale!

Plant Sale Highlights: We had another successful plant sale this year. Our plant sale turned into a 3 day event! Our biggest sale was at the Missouri Botanical Garden. The plant sale and raffle did well but the weather was hot! Too hot for many visitors at the garden. So, with the leftover plants we went to Dittmer, MO and set up at Pat’s Concrete for a few hours. Several members helped set up and sell plants. It was a fun day and John bought ice cream for everyone. Yummy! Our last sale was at Sandy’s in her driveway. Again we had a nice group of members helping and now all of our plants are hopefully planted in beautiful flower beds.

Congratulations to everyone who won in our raffle. We had a beautiful bird bath donated by Pat’s Concrete, a gorgeous glass bird bath tray, one of Sugar Creek Garden’s donated plants, several amazing hand stitched pictures made by one of our talented members, a strawberry pot, and several other great items donated by members. We had many happy winners!!

A special thanks to Sugar Creek Gardens for donating the fantastic plants for our sale.  Also to Pat’s Concrete for the beautiful bird bath. Thank You also to everyone who dug in their yards for plants, Larry for his great wood bird houses and whirligig bird, all the donated raffle items and to all members who came out to help set up and work the day of the sale. You guys are awesome, we couldn’t do it without you.
