Like those colorful seed catalogs suddenly filling our mailboxes, I have in my hand another sign of Spring: the order form for Racine Neighborhood Watch's annual plant sale. Somebody please tell the Weather Man that Winter is so over!
"It's Flower Time!" says the form, only rushing the season a little. The deadline for ordering is April 18.
The money raised by Neighborhood Watch's plant sale supports the entire program: block watch meetings for crime prevention, monthly neighborhood meetings, National Night Out, free mediation, and participation in community projects such as Earth Day, Make a Difference Day, and others.
Neighborhood Watch has been in Racine since the early 1980’s, and the plant sale has been a colorful fixture since 1995. Originally, Neighborhood Watch just sold geraniums, but now offers a wide variety of flowers and even a few vegetables. All plants come from a local grower. Order deadline is April 18, and the pickup and delivery date is Saturday, May 17.
Clicking HERE will produce the order form. Just print it out, fill it in and return it to Neighborhood Watch with payment. If for any reason you can't retrieve the form, contact Mary McIlvaine at Racine Neighborhood Watch, 800 Center Street, Room 316, Racine, WI 53403; call 637-5711 or email.
