Promoting The Most Amazing Plant Sale To Benefit Gloucester Education Foundation

Susan Kelly submits-

Hi Joey,

Could you promote the plant sale this week?  It is Saturday May 18th from 9-3 at Stage Fort Park. 

It is amazing because

1. Plants are donated by Gloucester Gardeners, so they will do well in Gloucester

2. All proceeds go to Gloucester Education Foundation

3. Gardeners who donate plants will get a tax deduction letter for the dollar value from the sale of their plants

4. Beautiful gardens make people happy!
