BENEFITING: ALLYNS CREEK GARDEN CLUB INC
EVENT DATE: Oct 01, 2011
We are raising money for the many Rochester based environmental projects that our club, established in 1928, helps to fund and support. Some of us are pretty great gardeners and flower arrangers and some of us aren't. But we all love the Rochester area and our parent organization, The Garden Club of America.
