Good fundraiser for Colby-Cur­tis

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Vic­to­ria Vanier Stanstead

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.
