Wildflower Garden Club Plants Tree at Sater Heights Park in Honor of Arbor Day

With the help of Gary Kirby, the Wildflower Garden Club planted a Fall Fiesta Maple tree at the boy’s ball diamond in Greenville. Previously the club had planted trees at the Darke County Fairgrounds, Woodland Heights School, the girl’s ball diamond, Turtle Creek Golf Course, Rest Haven Nursing home, and the North Park behind Kroger Store.

The garden club will be selling fair tickets this year at Rural King instead of the Kroger store as they had been for 20 years. Kroger management is limiting the groups who have sold items there in the past to only boy and girl scouts now.

Money earned from the sale of fair tickets is used to finance their beautification projects around Darke County.

The club’s projects are as follows; Planters at Wayne Healthcare, the planters at the Lowell Thomas House behind Garst Museum. The flower beds at the Moose Lodge and the Darke County Animal Shelter flower beds.

They hope to see all the people at the new Rural King this year who bought fair tickets from the garden club every year when they were selling at Kroger for all those 20 years.

The times they will be selling tickets are Friday August 14th., Saturday August 15, 9AM to 9PM and on Sunday August 16th. 9AM to 6PM.
