At 9 a.m. a car pool to drive to the garden meets at the parking lot of the Bristol Masonic Hall, 35 Pleasant St., Bristol.

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 club encourages visitors to enjoy the garden's perennials and riverside location throughout the season. Picnic tables and benches are available for public use.
Volunteers who would like to help with Butterfly/Rain Garden maintenance can attend a work day on October 8, 9 - 11 a.m. For additional information, call Shirley Yorks, 603-744-6630.
