Members of our Omemee Horticultural Club are magnificent in volunteering their time and plants, thus making this sale work. As chairperson of the sale committee, I would like to thank each and every one for their contribution in helping to make this sale a success. And a special thanks to all of the spouses who were there both for support and to help – it takes everyone to make such a great event.
This year we decided to raffle off a large planter. It contained 3 of the annuals that we had for sale: “White Splash” geraniums, “Emerald Lace” sweet potato vine and “Kingswood Torch” coleus, as well as a lovely white and pink verbena. It was a great fundraiser for the club, bring in $196! The elated winner was Nicole Cocker Toll, from Omemee.
Let’s all give ourselves a good pat on the back for another successful plant sale. Oh, by the way, the date for next year’s sale is May 12 – mark it on your calendar!
