Spring­ing into action

Spring Din­ner & Auction May 28

Annapolis Valley Register - - NEWS - An­napo­lis royal

A true sign of spring for more than two decades has been the ar­rival of the His­toric Gar­dens Spring Din­ner & Auction in An­napo­lis Royal.

This year’s din­ner will be held on May 28 and is shaping up to be a ter­rific evening of Fundrais­ing in our com­mu­nity.

This an­nual gala auction event has be­come a much-an­tic­i­pated so­cial gath­er­ing and is the key an­nual fundraiser for the gar­dens. A vol­un­teer team of imag­i­neers will be cre­at­ing ‘An English Coun­try Gar­den’ theme for this year’s spe­cial am­biance.

Paula Bux­ton is once again donat­ing her time and tal­ent to the gar­dens, cre­at­ing a won­der­ful menu and as­sem­bling a tal­ented team of vol­un­teers to as­sist her in pre­par­ing a three­course meal, with a choice of chicken or salmon en­tree (pre­s­e­lected with ticket pur­chase).

Or­ga­niz­ers are pleased with how this year’s event is coming to­gether.

“We have an in­cred­i­ble group of vol­un­teers work­ing hard on all as­pects of the din­ner and auction - that energy and en­thu­si­asm is al­ways key to our suc­cess,” says Tr­ish Fry, gar­dens man­ager.

Af­ter din­ner, auc­tion­eer Blain Hen­shaw will take the stage. There will be plenty of great items to bid on, in­clud­ing lots of in­cred­i­ble plant ma­te­rial for the gar­den as well as art­work, ser­vices, and hand­crafts. It is a won­der­ful so­cial time as com­mu­nity mem­bers and vis­i­tors alike gather in sup­port of the award-win­ning An­napo­lis Royal His­toric Gar­dens. A photo gallery of items up for bid will be online soon at http:// his­toric­gar­den­sauc­tion.word­press.com
