Good fundraiser for Colby-Curtis
Organizerswere happy to see that there were not many plants left after the Colby-Curtis’ annual plant sale, held last Saturday. “The weather forecast was terrible so we had put all the plants in the barn. But when we saw that the weather was good, we had time to get the plants back on the lawn,” said Jennifer Sudlow, who organized the event with Penny Packard and many volunteers.
Thanks partly to the sunny weather, the sale was very successful, raising almost $1000. This year, a beautiful hanging basket supplied by Holland Gardens was put up for a raffle, raising $125. It was won by Susan Edwards who lives just across the street from the museum, so organizers didn’t have to go far to deliver it.
“I’d like to say a big ‘Thank You’ to all the volunteers and everyone who dug up their plants and potted them nicely, they looked really lovely out there on the lawn, and to those who came to buy plants,” concluded Mrs. Sudlow.
Most of the money raised will be put towards the museum’s Victorian garden and some will go towards the Museum’s boutique.
Personnel and clients of the CSSS Memphremagog gather in the parking lot after a successful fire drill, held last Wednesday.
