Holiday Auction

In years past we have had silent auctions at our December  meeting. This year we will have a SERENDIPITY AUCTION  an auction of members talents and services. Get excited!!! We have a great line-up of auction items!


We will have a pamphlet of items offered at our November Meeting so you can get together with friends to plan what to bid on!

Garden Tools

An easy way to  put away your tools for the winter, Fill an old bucket or pot with sand and WD-40 or vegetable oil. Knock dirt clumps off your metal tools and then stick the metal parts into the sand. You can rub the wooden handles with linseed oil. In the spring rub off the sand with a rough cloth. Be sure to save the oily sand for next year!
