Well, the 2015 plant sale is over, and what a wild three days it was!
On Thursday evening, we set up the tables and got the signs in place. Many hands make light work, and the plants on the tables were already taking shape. All day Friday, volunteers spent their day sorting plants, labeling, putting plants in their proper place, pricing, helping unload the next load of plants from diggers, etc. And the snacks were yummy! Saturday morning dawned warm and bright, and the buyer’s lineup began shortly after 8 o’clock. At 8:30 the doors opened and the shopping began, with over 100 people rushing in to get first choice!
Again this year, a lovely planter was raffled off, and the lucky winner was from Kirkfield. After a quick phone call, she was on her way back to pickup her prize, and was thrilled!
This is the main fundraiser for the Omemee and District Horticultural Society, and once again it was successful. Thanks to all who helped – it takes a village to raise a plant sale!
