090213 New Hampton Garden Club will hold workshop on silks (225)

NEW HAMPTON — The New Hampton Garden Club will meet at 9:30 a.m. on September 3 at the Gordon-Nash Library for a program presented by Michelle Nichols from Dockside Florist in Meredith who will conduct a workshop entitled, "Let's Get Real with Silks."

The club's Old Home Day sale raised over $800 for the club. Thanks to the hard work and generous contributions from members and local businesses the sale of plants, baked goods, nearly new items and of course the most popular items, the raffle baskets, was a great success.

The club is very grateful to the businesses that donated gift certificates or items for the raffle baskets: Guy Giunta and the N H Lilac Commission, Renaissance Florals, Petal Pushers, Winnisquam Agway, Parkhurst, The Common Man, Hart's Turkey Farm Restaurant, Gilly's, Gina's Place, Hermit Woods Winery, Squam Lakes Science Center, Funspot, Plum Crazy Pizza, the Homestead Restaurant, The Mill Fudge Factory, Annalee Dolls and Twin Designs of Bristol.
Proceeds from the sale will help to support the many on-going club projects such as the Youth Garden Club at the New Hampton Community School, the Garden Therapy program at Golden Crest in Franklin, as well as the eight garden sites in town that the club has established and continues to maintain.
The NHGC meets at 9:30 a.m. the first Tuesday of the month at the Gordon-Nash Library in New Hampton.
