Ninth Annual Garden Faire, Plant Sale May 18
Spring is here, and the members of the Silver Creek Hanover Garden Club are busy making their final preparations for the ninth annual Garden Faire to be held on Saturday, May 18, in the village park (corner of Main Street and Central Avenue) in Silver Creek from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The faire will be held rain or shine.
The annual Garden Faire will have plant sales, craft sales, food, silent auction, raffles, vendors and free activities for the kids. The plant sale at the Garden Faire is a great way to get new garden plants at a reasonable price and help support our efforts to beautify the Silver Creek community too.
Members offer a wide variety of garden plants as well as donated plant materials from our local gardens and nurseries. Also, the group will be giving away free tomato plants to the first 100 people who purchase plants or crafts from the garden club.
As in previous years, the group will have a variety of food and craft vendors in addition to the plant and flower sale. Vendors showcase a variety of popular and local crafts for everyone’s enjoyment.
Also new for this year will be a free pet training and grooming seminar by Ally and Louise from Petsmart along with a free giveaway.
A silent auction will feature many great prizes and gift certificates as well as a drawing for a free geranium on the hour from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The auction is made possible due to the generosity of sponsors such as Proven Winners, Paw Paw Everlast Label Co., Salvatore’s Hospitality, Mulberry Restaurant, Botanical Garden Society, Smith’s True Value, Webb’s Restaurant, O’Malia’s Liquor Store, Ellie’s Deli, Brunner’s Bayside Catering, Lee Valley Tools and Sunset Bay Restaurant and numerous other local businesses.
The garden club is always welcoming new members and applications will be available at the Garden Faire. The club was established in 2010 to promote the use, study and enjoyment of gardening for the public and its members.
The club meets at 11 a.m. on the second Saturday of each month at the Silver Creek Senior Center located at 1823 Lake Road (Route 5), Silver Creek.
