An Awesome Success!
From holding the Plant Sale outside for a couple of years, we were able to return the sale to the basement of the St. James’ Catholic Church. The tables and counter were filled with plants before the doors opened at 9 am on Saturday, May 27th. A dozen customers were lined up at the door prior to the opening. Over half the plants were sold by 10 am. The rest were gone before noon.
It was an opportunity to chat with both experienced gardeners and those just beginning to garden. Knowledge was shared. People left with plants new to them and favorites that will fill that empty spot. We received many appreciative comments.
Our hard work that brought the plants to sell helped us raise over $800. We always tithe on the profits of our fund raisers. This year, the tithe will go to the Dr. Helmcken Memorial Hospital Auxiliary’s fund for the new X-ray machine.
