Summer Garden Flower Fiesta / 2013

The Summer Garden Flower Fiesta – 2013

was a great success!  There were about 20 entrants and ALL of the bouquets were not only lovely but sold in the silent auction to benefit GMCR’s FM Matching fund.  AND the proceeds from the event pushed us past 50% of our $10,000 goal to receive that $10,000 Match!

We’d like to think that the Flower Fiesta was a help in attracting over 1,000 in attendance for the August 24 2013 market – a record!

The Mini classes on various aspects of gardening and flower cultivation were also a big hit along with the Kids activities.

Many thanks to all for their help in organizing and conducting the event.
