The Gettysburg Garden Club’s annual Christmas Greens and Gourmet Gifts Sale is on Saturday, December 4 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., or until sold out, at the Gettysburg Fire Hall, 35 North Stratton Street. Proceeds benefit the Lincoln Square Flower Gardens and scholarships for Adams County students majoring in horticulture-related fields.
The widely anticipated sale is receiving even greater interest because of COVID-19 cancellations last year. The community can expect the same range of handcrafted arrangements created by our master gardeners and other members whose love for gardening reflects through every element of creativity.
We will have wreaths, swags, candle and table arrangements, and other small arrangements. We use natural greens from the yards and farms of club members and community members in our decorations. In addition, our delicious gourmet selections for humans and dogs and cats are returning with the same taste that customers enjoy each year.
Supply chain challenges owed to COVID-19 are showing price increases and lower availability of some Christmas decorations. However, you can expect the same quality from the Gettysburg Garden Club, as in previous years, and with no price increase.
Could you please spread the word that we’re back? We accept cash and checks and suggest arriving early and browsing through our wide range of selections.
Please contact Joan Horak, 717-357-5615, or visit the Gettysburg Garden Club Facebook page for additional details.
Since we are still in a high incidence of COVID-19, we respectfully request that our patrons wear masks to the sale to keep our members and community safe.
The club needs freshly cut greens to make wreaths, arrangements, and tabletop trees. The following types of evergreens are needed: Frazier fir, juniper, Leyland cypress, cedars, yews, arborvitae, holly, southern magnolia, white pine, boxwood, and blue spruce. Holly and magnolia need to be kept in water. Please cut the greens November 26-28 and deliver to the fire hall on Sunday, November 28 or Monday, November 30 from 9 am to 3 pm or call Joan Horak at 717-357-5615 for pickup.
