Garrettsville – Spring is finally here and the Silver Creek Garden Club is hard at work preparing another season of beautiful hanging baskets, planters and flower beds that enhance the Village from spring to autumn. Each year almost $3000, and a significant number of volunteer hours are spent by the organization’s dedicated club members.

The Silver Creek Garden Club relies on donations from businesses, area residents, and the annual calendar fundraiser to raise the monies for their service project. Watch for the annual Garden Club plant sale during the Community Yard Sale May 16th & 17th, as funds raised from their sale will be used to purchase mulch for the flower beds at the Village Park.

This year the hanging baskets will be themed in pink in honor of long time member Faye Carlisle who passed away last December. Hanging baskets are planned to appear along State Routes 88 & 82, and at $55 to $75 per basket, expenses can add up quickly. Anyone interested in contributing to the flower basket fund can make a tax deductible donation by sending their contibution to the Garrettsville Area Chamber of Commerce (Post Office Box 1, Garrettsville, OH 44231). Please be sure write “Flower Baskets” in the memo line of your check.

The Silver Creek Garden Club is a member of the Garrettsville Area Chamber of Commerce. They are one of the many great organizations that help make Garrettsville a good place to visit, and a great place to live.
