Garden Club of Oakmont Spring Plant Sale
Saturday May 12, from 9am till 3 pm
Spring promises to be right around the corner and we are all looking forward to being outside and digging in the dirt. Mark your calendar for Saturday May 12, from 9am till 3 pm. It’s the Garden Club of Oakmont’s Spring Plant Sale held in the Hoffstot’s parking lot, right next to Brr-Kee’s Ice Cream Shop.
May 13th is Mother’s Day. So consider bringing Mom to choose her favorite floral arrangement or flat of annuals for her garden, patio or deck. Hanging baskets, tomato plants and many more unique and interesting ideas will make you smile. Herb and lettuce bowls and decorative planters created by our members will once again be available.
“From Our Own Gardens” are actually just that- perennials from our club members’ own gardens. You’ll see so many unique varieties that have been grown successfully in local gardens, all at great prices.
Proceeds benefit Boulevard beautification projects such as the hanging baskets at the clock tower and train station, flowers in the tree wells and urns, and at the entrances to Oakmont. Funds also support our scholarship, garden therapy programs for seniors, as well as many other community activities.
We can’t wait to see you there. We’re hoping for a rain free day.

2017 November Fundraiser Luncheon
Our Annual November Luncheon, held on November 15, 2017 was a sellout. The members of the club outdid themselves making treats for the “Sweet Shop”, creating many unique Chinese Auction baskets as well as spectacular centerpieces and decorations.
Thanks to our many donors and generous members our gift card tree, silent auctions and International Wine basket were all huge successes.
All of our guests thoroughly enjoyed a return performance by singer Judi Figel and her accompanist David Crisci, and a delicious 4 course luncheon. It was a wonderful way to start off the Holiday Season.
Next year’s November Luncheon will be Wednesday, November 14, 2018, so save the date.
