Letter: Thanks to all who persevered through rainy Plant Sale

To the editor:

One day of sun and one day of rain, but the Plant Sale volunteers persevered through the good and the — well, it rained all day Saturday. Many thanks to all who helped, donated and purchased plants.

This year’s event was filled with beautiful plants donated by Backyard Greenhouse, Critser’s, Designscape and Kelp’s. Perennials selected by Bern Waldheir and Kim Campbell were available from Brown Hill Nursery.

On Friday, the Brown County Herb Society sold herbs, garden plants and flowers; Allison Rubeck, Brown County Soil and Water Conservation District, and the Brown County Native Woodlands Project gave away free trees (black walnut, yellow sycamore and shagbark hickory); and Torrie Birkemeier gave packets of seeds and helped attendees learn more about Seed Brown County.

Events like this are only successful with the help of many volunteers. The Friends of the Library would like to thank those who did just that: Becky Freeman, Stori Snyder, Cathey Byers, Allison Braden, Gail Huff, Julie Winn, Judy East, Joyce and Bob Shook, Dan Waldhier, Joan Amati, Julia Rose, Mandy Kay, Mary Ann Cline, Michael Fulton, Janet Kramer, Jan Swigert, Carol Routh, Jane Huffman, Caren Senesac and Linda Wescott.

The Friends of the Brown County Public Library are grateful for all who participated and made this annual event, once again, a success.

Donna Ormiston, Friends of the Library Plant Sale committee
