Chelsea’s Festival of Trellises a Garden Success
From Meredith Nelson, Chelsea Senior Center
The Festival of TRELLISES was a colorfully successful FUNdraiser for the Chelsea Senior Center. We had garden guests enjoying a walk around our Intergenerational Garden learning about its many plants and programs, and also enjoy the beautifully decorated trellises from the community.
We want to share our sincere thanks to our event sponsor Chelsea Lumber Company, to all the groups and individuals who decorated and hosted a trellis (listed below), and to our committee members for their hard work and garden cheer. And a very special thank you to the Chelsea Area Garden Club for their support and donation for the CSC Intergenerational Garden.
Congratulations to our top vote getters of the event: Chelsea District Library – Marilyn Kuehl, Chelsea Area Players – Clara Smith, Merrill Crockett & Rita Hermann, Janet Alford & Kathy Gunderson, and the Most Votes Winner Mary Tomac & Chris Browning.
