*PLANT SALE ** PLANT SALE ** PLANT SALE ** PLANT SALE ** PLANT SALE*
SATURDAY, MAY 17
MARK YOUR CALENDAR!
Each May, FROG and the local chapter of the Herb Society of America hold a major joint sale of organic plants. It’s FROG’s major fundraiser -- the reason our dues stay low, and the source of the grant monies we give local non-profit groups that support organic gardening. Does holding the sale take work, starting right now? Yes. Can it also be lots of fun? You bet. Please plan to contribute however you can. We need you!
Co-chairs of this year’s plant sale committee--Marty Russell, Pamela Flowers; Ann Brinkman, and Michelle Cotton.
Dues reminder from treasurer Linda T: all 2014 dues must be paid in full by the end of February. Otherwise, sad to say, you won’t get further FROG newsletters or e-mails. Come in from the cold! Pay $10 and keep yourself up to date on upcoming programs and other activities.
