Duvall Civic Club to hold plant sale

The Duvall Civic Club will hold their annual plant sale on Saturday, May 11, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., behind the Duvall Library.
   Hundreds of plants, bushes and trees will be for sale, and there will be crafts from school children. On the same day, an arts and crafts show and sale by local artists will be held in the Rose Room of the library. Raffle tickets will be sold for special prizes. All funds go for local needs.
   The club members have been potting and labeling donated plants and there are plants on commercial consignment. Customers find a wide variety and good prices.
   The Civic Club was established in 1923 and has been a positive influence in the community since then. A Friends of the Library club, the members raise funds for library programs, a local scholarship, books for schools and for other needs of the area such as the youth center, the senior center and Children's Services.
   A master gardener will be present to answer questions about the care of the plants sold. Members with wagons and wheelbarrows can help move heavy plants.
   Besides the parking along Main Street, there are spaces along Railroad Ave. behind the library, and on Stella Street below City Hall. Those who prefer to stroll from the Park and Ride or along Main Street may purchase plants and then drive to the sale area for pickup.
   Guests and new members are welcome at the meetings of the Duvall Civic Club. Meetings are held at 7 p.m. in the library's Rose Room (in the lower level) on the second Wednesday of the month. The next meeting will be May 8.
