POINT PLEASANT — Once again, the Tu-Endie-Wei Garden Club will be sponsoring its annual poinsettia sale to help residents prepare for the holidays with proceeds from the sale used on beautification projects in Point Pleasant for the coming year.
The club’s main projects are buying plants for Gunn Park, the Mason County Library, Sixth Street Silver Bridge Memorial, and Mt. Vernon Avenue. In addition to purchasing the plants, club members supervise and plant these areas with the help of other community groups.
“This is our main fund raising project for the year,” said Molly Park, poinsettia sales co-chairperson. “If we don’t make enough money from this project, our planting projects are in jeopardy. Se we urge the community to be supportive of our efforts to improve the beauty of our community.”
The club purchases its poinsettias from Bob’s Market of Mason at a discount, and sells them for the same price as the market. Small 6-inch pots will cost $8; large 8-inch pots are $15. In addition to the traditional red, pink, and white, the club will offer marble, which is white with a pink center, and ice crystal which has a center tending toward red with speckled white leaves. The flowers will be delivered by garden club members, and no sales tax will be added to the price. Because the flowers are locally grown, the public can be assured of their high quality and beauty.
Delivery dates will be each Friday: Nov. 30, Dec. 7, Dec. 14, Dec. 21. Businesses or individuals may place an order on Wednesdays with any garden club member or call project co-chairpersons, Joyce Gardner Lee, 304-675-7097, Park, 304-675-5027, or President Jeanie Brooks, 304-675-5801.
According to club members, “What would the holidays be without beautiful poinsettias?”
