October 19 will kick off the first of many opportunities to help ensure CHS is a vital part of the 2018 Flower & Garden Show that will take place on February 22-25 in Hartford.
CHS Annual Bulb Sale on Oct 19 – When you buy Galanthus, Narcissisus, Crocus and more at CHS Annual Bulb Sale, the proceeds will help offset expenses for the CHS display. You’ll find good values on old favorites and new bulbs to enhance your garden—or gift to a fellow enthusiast. The selection is enhanced this year by consult with October speaker Jason Delaney who provided a list of his favorites. We made sure some of those will be available!
Many Thanks for the generous donations of discounted bulbs from White Flower Farm and VanEnglens–Scheepers that make special values and ‘sold out’ items available to CHS members for this sale.
Flower Show Committee – Join a fun group who ultimately craft the set-up of the CHS display outside the speaker rooms at the show. A couple of hours here and there really help. Our next meeting is Tuesday, Oct. 17 from 4-6 pm.
Volunteers are needed to:
- Set-up & help at the Bulb Sale on October 19
- Sign-up CHS Ambassadors who introduce speakers at the show
- Collate handouts & membership materials for the show
- Set up our display tables and break them down post-show
…these are just a few jobs that could use your help!
To volunteer and / or join the Committee, call Nancy Brennick at 860-529-8713 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. There will be regular meetings held to prepare. Watch for dates and times on the CHS calendar at cthort.org.
