Planting Day update and 2nd call for Volunteers

Come plant more flowers this Saturday, May 21, 9:00-11:00 a.m.

Will you help beautify First Unitarian? No experience necessary. Tools provided or bring your favorite shovel and gloves. Please RSVP to Nancy Flanagan at

Last Saturday, May 14, a dedicated crew planted more than 50 flowers as light rain fell. Thank you Nancy Pinson, Pam Weiss, Dee Burdash, Renee Anderson, and Richard & Nancy Flanagan. Some said they had fun making a difference and would come back. A few of the new native plants are seen in this picture: Swamp Milkweed attracts monarch butterflies, Blue Flag Iris attracts dragonflies to eat mosquitos, Goldenrod attracts birds and butterflies, but best of all, people young and old want to come explore the garden.

Thank you also to Catherine Williamson and the children in Religious Education for planting flowers in April and creating drinking saucers. Butterflies have been seen drinking from them!
