It is time to think Spring! The sun has been trying to shine on Rutland between all the rain showers that have hit the area. The three inches of rain has soaked into the ground and the daylilies and hostas are among the many flowers showing their greenery.
May is usually when The Friendly Garden Club hosts its annual spring auction in Rutland. Unfortunately, the Club has disbanded and there will be no spring auction this year or years to come (at least at the time of this writing). However, there is hope for garden enthusiasts! This year the Little Old Ladies of Sargent County are hosting a Garden Party in nearby Milnor on Monday, May 19, from 6 to 9 p.m., at the Lakeview Golf Course.
Admission to the Garden Party is a “garden item” — a plant, gardening tool(s), garden decor, yard art, potting soil or seeds. Garden items will be accepted between 6:00 and 7:00 p.m. Those items will be placed on a silent auction which will end at 8:30 p.m. There will also be a cash drawing and door prizes. Hors d’oeuvres and sweets will be served and wine and other beverages will also be available for sale.
If you have attended any of the other events sponsored by the Little Old Ladies of Sargent County, you know everyone will have a great time! All proceeds go to the Sargent County Relay for Life. Come on out and have some fun and contribute to a great cause!!
