Thank you for supporting plant sale

To the editor:

Thank you to all who supported the Fort Dodge Federated Garden Club’s annual plant and garage sale. Even on a cool, cloudy day, we had many customers. At the close of the sale, unsold perennial plants were donated to PICA, Pride in Community Appearance. Congratulations to Marge Herrington, who won the raffle for a beautiful hanging planter donated by Jeff Becker.

We want to express a huge thank you to Becker Florists and Garden Center, the businesses who graciously allowed us to post fliers in their restaurants and stores, the Lions Club for making their facility available to us, The Messenger for publicity, and all who purchased plants and sale items.

Profits from our plant sale and annual Twilight Tour of Gardens support many projects, including horticulture and landscape design scholarships, tree plantings in Fort Dodge, gardening books for the local library, the Greater Des Moines Botanical Gardens, the Iowa Arboretum at Luther, our local flower show, and many more projects.

The entire garden club joins me in thanking you for your support. We’ll see you in July at our Twilight Tour of Gardens and again next spring at our plant and garage sale.
