Pasquaney Garden Club seeks volunteers for variety of assignments (329)

BRISTOL — The Pasquaney Garden Club monthly meeting on Tuesday May 21 at  9:30 a.m. at the Bristol Baptist Church is dedicated to organizing the volunteer assignments for the planters and garden areas around Bristol and planning the annual plant and bake sale fundraiser.
Anyone interested in volunteering to help maintain the plantings that beautify Bristol over the summer is welcome to attend the meeting.
The annual plant and bake sale, the club's major fundraiser for the club, will be held on Saturday, June 1 at 8 a.m. to noon, at the Butterfly/Rain Garden behind the Minot Sleeper Library in Bristol
Members donate plants from their personal gardens. Most of the plants are perennials, but some annuals are available also. This year, the club will also feature some special varieties of peonies. Anyone interested in buying these peonies can place an order at the plant sale, or through the Garden Club throughout May and June. The bake sale will include cookies, bars, breads and other delicacies.
The Butterfly/Rain Garden behind the Minot Sleeper Library in Bristol has been redesigned and expanded following construction of the new library addition, and a new courtyard garden has been added in front of the library. The site and soil have been prepared for planting. Perennials were delivered to the site on May 14 for the Butterfly/Rain Garden and May 21 for the courtyard garden. Volunteers are needed May 21-22 at 9 a.m. throughout the day, to assist professional landscapers, who will do the planting. Volunteer tasks include moving plants to their planting locations, removing them from pots, spreading newspapers for mulch, and watering. Volunteers should bring newspapers, black print only, gardening tools such as a trowel and watering can, and gloves. Volunteers will also be needed throughout the summer.
