Golden Roads Daffodil Planting November 7 – Saturday, 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM
Thank you past roadside daffodil planting volunteers and those who signed up for this fall’s planting at the Lewisboro Library Volunteer Fair. Your support of the Lewisboro Garden Club’s Golden Roads Daffodils roadside beautification initiative is much appreciated.
This year, due to the coronavirus, our 14th annual daffodil planting will be a much smaller event and limited to garden club members only. The planting will adhere to the then current government coronavirus requirements, including cancelling the planting if indicated.
The garden club will plant 1,200 to 1,400 tall golden yellow daffodils behind the existing Golden Roads daffodil blend at Vista Community Park, Route 123 and East Street.
Hopefully, next year we’ll again get together as a community of volunteers, to continue beautifying Lewisboro’s roadsides.
Please stay safe and well.
