Shred Day and Charity Garden Market canceled due to virus

Shred Day Fundraiser – April 25th moved to TBD Fall date.

Charity Garden Market – May 9th – It is with much regret that we’ve canceled our Charity Garden Market for 2020.  It was an agonizing decision for the Committee as flowers bring joy and beauty to our lives particularly during this unprecedented time.  We had hoped to continue with an on-line annuals purchase and pick-up/delivery, but that will not be possible.  For anyone that had already placed an on-line order, we have refunded your purchase.

May God bless our world, and each of you with healing and strength.
