PLANT SALE RESULTS!
WHPWA Plant Sale held on June 12, 2021
On Saturday, June 12th the WHPWA held their spring fund-raiser: the ever-popular From Our Gardens to Yours Plant Sale. The morning's sales were brisk, and several hundred plants went home to new gardens. The WHPWA raised slightly over $900 – a significant achievement considering the Boothbay Harbor Memorial Library had held their plant sale just the week before! Thank you to Association members who volunteered their time and plants to make the sale a success.
A special thank you to Leslie and Dennis Volpe for again hosting the sale at their house. The beautiful gardens provided a lovely backdrop for the event . Leslie and BJ Dobson contributed a substantial number of plants from their gardens for the sale, and they were extremely helpful to those shoppers seeking gardening advice or plant identification.
Our lucky winner of a $50 gift certificate to Conley’s Garden Center and Landscaping was Abbie Shaw of Boothbay Harbor. Conley’s graciously donated the certificate to help with our fund raising initiative.
The WHPWA is already getting ready for next year's sale, so start planning now...to volunteer on the committee, to donate plants, to start seedlings, to come buy plants to freshen your gardens!
Moonlight Paddles - a great way to enjoy the Pond!
The next Moonlight Paddle will be in Spring 2022
Join us for the rising of the Moon
These lovely evenings on the water are a tranquil experience that only West Harbor Pond can offer. Friends/neighbors meet in the center of the pond, near the water-station buoy. You may choose to take a leisurely paddle down to the dam; then head back to the best viewing spot – near the islands – to watch the moon come up over the resort.The more boats the merrier – invite neighbors, friends and family. Bug spray and a flashlight are recommended!
Moonlight paddles are a weather dependent activity. In case of wind, rain or clouds we'll have to cancel or postpone. Check your email (members), the West Harbor Pond Facebook page, or this page for the specific details each month. A cancellation will be called by 5:00pm on the day of the event if necessary.
Fishing is a great year-round activity on West Harbor Pond
