Thanks garden club supporters
To the editor:
Thank you to all who supported the Fort Dodge Federated Garden Club’s recent annual Plants and Treasures sale. An amazing crowd of enthusiastic shoppers bought a large percentage of our plants during the first 45 minutes.
Congratulations to Barb Messerly, who won the raffle for the beautiful hanging planter donated by Jeff Becker.
Thanks 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 and AlphaMedia for publicity, everyone who shared our Facebook posts, and all who purchased plants and related items.
Profits from our plant sale and annual Tour of Gardens support many projects, including trees for various parks in Fort Dodge, gardening books for the local library, horticulture and landscape design scholarships, 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. Barring further COVID-19 complications, we’ll see you at the July 9 Twilight Tour of Gardens and again at next spring’s sale. Happy Gardening!
