This past Saturday May 17th, from 10 till 1, we held our 4th annual Perennial Plant Sale and Park Planting in Overington Park. We planted 6 new trees, 3 beds of Cannas, and mulched our 12 beds. We raised over $300, an all-time best, selling perennials culled from our FOOP (Friends of Overington Park) members gardens and donated from friends of our Friends group.
We had over 40 volunteers come out to help make the event run smoothly. Frankford JR ROTC, the Joy of Living men and women, Frankford Garden Club, and FOOP members worked hard to make the day a success. We sold over 150 plants to the crowd that filled the park early to get the best pick of the plants on offer at the sale.
Once again the Love was felt in Overington Park. We went home tired but happy, feeling good about the work we accomplished together in our park. Overington is ready for another summer season, please come out and enjoy the fresh air and beauty our park has to offer.
Our next event will be on Saturday, June 14th from 12 till 3 for the Overington Park Meet and Greet, pot luck picnic and salsa contest. Come out and meet the people who make Overington Park the jewel in Frankford’s crown and have a good time with your neighbors in your community. Hope to see you there!
