NEW HAMPTON — The New Hampton Garden club held their monthly meeting on July 7 with discussion regarding the upcoming New Hampton Old Home Day on August 8 and and plans for once again offering several gift baskets for raffles. In the past these have been an enjoyable activity for those attending the event, as well as people purchasing advance tickets when they are unable to be at Old Home Day.
As usual these baskets will be loaded with surprise contents with the following categories: Made in N. H. products, wine basket, children's theme and a reader's delight tray w/books and treats. These baskets have several gift certificates tucked in with the plentiful contents. We will be selling raffle tickets at the New Hampton Fire House on August 7 at the Bloodmobile. Come one and all to buy tickets and donate blood.
Ellie Morrison passed out an information sheet on mulch. She then discussed the various gardens that the club maintains and what flowers are grown in them and where they are. She noted that the person in charge of each garden is listed in our book but encouraged all to help with the weeding and clean up of the gardens. The Korean/Vietnam garden has been mulched, weeded, and pruned. Priscilla shared that a veteran from Bristol has been helping out at the garden and we welcome any other veterans to join in and help us maintain this garden spot.
