THIS HEAVY WET SNOW ALONG WITH GUSTY NORTH WINDS OF 15 TO 25 MPH

    Julia – the Woodstock Garden Club is going to continue our plant sale and food booth on Monday. We have a great assortment of perennials for sale but no annuals. Our Food tent will feature hot dogs and fabulous baked goods. We encourage all to come out afte the rain to support the Garden Club so that we can continue to beautify the town and support gardening endeavors for the community. The plant sale is our once a year major fundraiser.

    Thank you for your consideration.
