Thank you to everyone who helped with our Spring Plant Sale & Auction in Berlin. It takes many people to pull this event together from getting publicity out, collecting donations from nurseries and garden centers, bringing food and beverages, helping with setup and break down, helping with pricing, recording auction prices, collecting the money, running credit cards, etc. Thanks also to everyone who donated plants from your yards. All of the help and hard work is greatly appreciated. We raised $5,364 for the CHS Scholarship Fund!
Many thanks to our educational and entertaining auctioneers: Lisa Elder from Natureworks, Liba Judd from Broken Arrow Nursery and our very own Maryanne Gryboski, Judy King and Kevin Wilcox.
