  May 6, 2010, is soon here and we will be up at 4:00 am to prepare for our annual sale.  I volunteered again this year to chair our yearly largest fund raising event.  This time, we are a team of three co-chairs and it is wonderful not to have to worry alone.

Our club posted the following blurb in the local media:

“Gardeners and anyone who loves plants won’t want to miss the Bethesda Community Garden Club’s annual plant sale. The 2010 Sale will be on Thursday, May 6. The sale, at the Bethesda Farm Women’s Market, 7155 Wisconsin Avenue, Bethesda, will run from 7:00 AM until 1:00 PM rain or shine — come early. Find wonderful buys on a large selection of perennials grown in members’ well-tended gardens, plus herbs, annuals, native plants and shrubs. Novices and experts alike can pose their gardening questions to Montgomery County Master Gardeners on site throughout the sale. Proceeds benefit various community projects including landscaping at Bethesda and Davis libraries and a Montgomery College scholarship in landscape technology. Plentiful metered public parking is available in the lot behind the Market. The Bethesda Community Garden Club — celebrating 87 years of community service.”

I look forward to seeing you there on May 6, 2010.
