  • September 2, 2017 - Summer Garden Plant Sale - Saturday, 9:00am to 1:00pm
The Family Garden Club had a very successful plant sale in July. Thanks to all that participated. The next plant sale will be held on Saturday, September 2, 2017. The types of plants available for sale will be announced soon.
As in the past, the plants were propagated for this sale to raise money to fund Lemon Bay High School scholarships and other local community projects. At the 2017 awards night at LBHS the club awarded two $2,000 scholarship. One to David Kappelmann and the other to Sarah Lown. The money was raised from the previous plant sales. We thank you all for your patronage and support of our sales.
