Geraniums a hit with BR club

Published 9:38 am Thursday, May 4, 2017

The Bermuda Run Garden Club geranium sale is eagerly anticipated each spring, not only by the members, but by the customers.

Members pre-sell the plants and provide all of the assistance for pick-up of the geraniums on the April delivery date.

The sale, which began in 2009, is by far the largest fundraising project undertaken by the club. Each year the sales have been better than the year before, attesting to the beauty and the quality of the flowers.

The project’s success can be attributed to each member’s participation and total commitment to the cause. This year more than 740 pots were sold. All of the proceeds go to fund the causes in Davie County that the Bermuda Run Garden Club supports; such as, Storehouse for Jesus, Davie County Public Library, Lunch Buddies mentoring, Meals on Wheels Bouquets, Exceptional Children’s Luncheon for Davie County Schools, and the Davie Community Foundation.

The co-chairs of this project are Shirley Cagle and Betty Sheek. Their leadership and organizational skills are critical to the success.

One new customer who bought three pots said: “These are the biggest and most beautiful geraniums I have ever seen. I will definitely order again next year and so will my daughter.”
