Spring Home & Garden Show

Great success at this year’s Spring Home & Garden Show at the Washington County Fairgrounds.  The weather kept us a bit cool and damp at times but we had a great response to both our booth and our kids’ table.

Winner of the $25 Gift Certificate for the Plant Sale was Paulette Miller of Salem.
