05/07/2022 Plant Sale and Raffle

Date: Saturday, May 7., 2022

Time: 9am-1pm

Name: Plant Sale and Raffle

Location: Grafton Common

Description: The Grafton Garden Club Annual Plant Sale and Raffle provides all our scholarship and grant money. We have not had this sale in two years (2020 and 2021) due to the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, and we need to have a strong sale this year to refill the coffers so we can continue to provide the financial assistance our students and educators rely on. All members are encouraged to help on the day of the sale. We plan on selling vegetable, herbs, annuals, hanging baskets, perennials donated by Club members and Grafton residents, and we’ll have a bake sale table and the always popular Raffle.

Pantone’s color of the year for 2022 is Very Peri, a new color that is based on periwinkle. To celebrate the Color of the Year, there is a hand-crocheted, light-periwinkle afghan to be raffled off during the Grafton Garden Club’s Plant Sale and Raffle. This is a queen-bed sized afghan. It is acrylic, using 22 skeins of 7 ounces (364 yards) of yarn for a total of 154 ounces (9.6 pounds) and 8008 yards (4.55 miles)! There are 4 columns with ridges with no decorations on each of the two sides and columns of flowers separated by ridges all of which are crocheted into the afghan as an integral part of the design (not just applied afterwards). It is something that needs to be seen to be really appreciated. The afghan was hand-crocheted, designed, and donated for this raffle by the current President of the Grafton Garden Club, Deborah Graham. Raffle tickets are on sale now at 3 for $10. The drawing will be on May 7, 2022 at the conclusion of the Plant Sale and Raffle. If you are interested in taking a chance on this afghan, send your name, contact number, address and a check in increments of $10 for 3 tickets made payable to the Grafton Garden Club, P.O. Box 453, Grafton, MA 01519-0453. We’ll fill in the tickets for you and return the stubs to you.

Cost: Free to attend, items for sale
