Fundraising event planned Thursday

Double Rainbow Farm is hoping to raise some funds during its Animal Sanctuary Benefit. There will be a fundraising event at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Elks Club. Each $10 ticket provides the donor with a chance to win one of several prizes. The prizes include a kayak, a cooler full of beef, a two-hour pontoon rental from Wolf Run Marina, and a weekend for four — including horseback riding — in one of the Double Rainbow cabins. Appetizers are included, drinks will be available, and there will also be other fund-raising activities.

Garden Club meets

The Warren Garden Club met on June 16 at Sharon Miller’s home. The purpose of the meeting was to create a whimsical garden decoration using glass plates and dinnerware. Miller demonstrated the procedure and then assisted the ladies as everyone successfully created a lovely ornament. The July meeting will be held at 1 p.m. on July 21 at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Meyer Hall. The presenter will be past president of Warren Garden Club and orchid expert Louise Dyer. Dyer has been raising orchids for over 30 years. She will be demonstrating repotting and general care of orchids. Also on the July agenda is a discussion of the August meeting at the Kinzua Bridge State Park and a tour of the dahlia farm in Mount Jewett. A date will be set to dedicate the Celeron Park book box, as well.
