Mother's Day Fundraiser 2015

Mother's Day may be a little while down the road, but we are already talking about the upcoming fundraiser.

This will be our 3rd year doing Mother's Day planters through Hilltop Greenhouse in Victoria.

The past two years we have received wonderful reviews on the planters. Last year new options were added such as the strawberry and tomato baskets. They were phenomenal! Many of us at Balfour's purchased them for ourselves and were treated to summer of endless tastiness!

If you would like to "pre-order" see the the March 2014 posting below with some of the plants and pricing - our new order forms will be out next week sometime.

Order Timeline:

All orders due Wednesday April 8th

Delivered Tuesday May 5th

Delivery/Pick up of orders evening of May 5th & all day May 6th.

What is a membership drive?

To put it simply we need you!

We are quickly growing and need as much support as we can muster. While we are ever grateful to those who support us on an event-to-event basis and volunteer to aid with fundraisers, we need to build a voting membership.

New faces mean new ideas and we need as many faces and ideas as you are willing to give us. If you would like to become a foundation member please contact us for more information.
