Itís Springtime Ė a little soggy, but the calendar says it is Spring!

The gardens are being weeded and prepared for a summer of fun. The planting beds are in the process of being filled and amended for a new season of planting vegetables and flowers. All we need is a group of energetic Green Thumbs!
      Funds are available from Friends of Fircrest for the purchase of new plants and other items needed for the beds. Some Houses have already made their requests and are on the road to growing.
     Donít miss out! Reach out to Friends of Fircrest if you need help with your purchases.
