CELEBRATING 25 years and going strong, the Long Point Garden Club is sponsoring its annual flea market Oct. 9 at the Brumwell flea market on Mountain Road, starting at 8 a.m. and continuing until all items are sold.
The sale is an opportunity for the club to raise money for community projects and to get other gardeners interested in joining.
The club, a member of the Maryland Federated Garden Clubs-District 2, meets at 10: 30 a.m. the third Wednesday of each month at the Long Point Hall on Long Point Road.
Katie Haines, president and longtime member, said you don't have to live in the community or be a fantastic gardener to come to the meetings. Each month, a speaker presents a program on gardening subjects and members share tips, tricks and helpful hints.
At the next meeting, on Oct. 20, pharmacist Dina Smith, from Metro Pharmacy, will talk about a popular subject: herbs as medicines.
Prospective members are welcome to attend. Information: 410-255-6087.
