Our Annual Plant Sale and Auction is next Tuesday, May 9th at the Manchester Community Center.

This event is the Seaside Garden Club’s only fundraiser for the year.  Proceeds help fund our community service projects and programs.  Support from our members in the past has made our auction successful and fun!  If you donate a plant or two or just come and bid on items – your support means a lot to the club!

6 pm – Doors open: Quick Sale and Eye Poppers available

7 pm – Auction starts

New this year (based on popular demand) we are adding a Quick Sale and Eye Popper tables.  Plants will be marked for sale (cash or check and carry) and will not be combined with auction items.  Come early – Quick Sale and Eye Poppers start at 6:00 pm and close at 6:40 pm.

We have some terrific donations from area businesses:  

  • 3 yards of mulch (delivered!) from Pallazola Brothers
