Duck River Garden Club’s May Plant Sale Cancelled

Duck River Garden Club’s Annual Plant Sale for 2020 has been cancelled.

OLD LYME — Duck River Garden Club’s (DRGC) popular Plant Sale scheduled for Mother’s Day weekend, May 8-9, has been cancelled.

Fay Wilkman, whose term as president ends in June, told LymeLine, “That sale has been going for over 40 years. We sell a large amount of geraniums, with a very loyal pre-order customer base. On Thursday [April 30], we decided to call those customers to tell them about the canceled sale and see if they would still like to place an order. We are planning on having them [the geraniums] available after May 20th, but details are still in the works.”

Wilkman added that all DRGC meetings for March, April, May also had to be cancelled and sadly their June Dinner too. She commented, “The dinner was supposed to take place at the Flo Gris and was to be our 50th Anniversary Celebration,” continuing, “We will be posting signs at the sale location and at our seven civic sites in town, referencing our 50th anniversary and our support of our emergency workers.”

She concluded, “We will continue to care for our seven civic sites in town,” and reflecting a sign of the times, she added, “We’re just working out schedules that will limit the number of people at each site at one time.”
