Our plant sale this year was a huge success. We made over $2000; the most we have ever made. Thanks to everyone who contributed plants, helped dig plants, helped set-up and take down and talk with customers. As usual, there was a lot of interest and it was a fun event. A huge thank-you to Cecelia for her superb organizational skills. That made things run very smoothly!
Members Carolyn Turner, Cecilia Johnson, Joe Bricker, Richer Maloeuf, Gail Santner and Cecelia Jokerst have been busy! You may remember that our chapter planted native plants by the OSU 4H building last spring. Earlier this month, this group pulled weeds, deadheaded and mulched so that it would look good for an upcoming symposium being held there.
An extra bonus, spotted by Cecelia Jokerst when she stopped by to water sometime later, were the monarch caterpillars on the butterfly weed! As we know, “if you plant it, they will come”. A big thanks to these volunteers!
