Creativity meets snow
Before all the snow melts - celebrate the end of winter by creating a fabulous snowman or woman or creature or sculpture. Yes indeed, it's time for the WCA's Annual Snowman Contest (and it doesn't have to be a snowman!) It's free to enter ... just take a photo of your fabulous creation and send it to wca@tds.net by noon on  Monday, March 6, 2017. There will be prizes for the winners, including a gift certificate for the Wilmot Garden Club Plant Sale for the best Think Spring entry.

Kids - y
ou have the rest of Winter Break to make a snowy owl, alligator or fort. Whatever and wherever your imagination leads you. We can't wait to see what you create! [More]

February headlines
 

An evening of murder, mystery & mayhem!

Thanks a million! The Mystery Dinner was a grand success! The Red Barn was jumping on Friday night, February 10. An enthusiastic crowd of merrymakers came out for a night of mystery, mayhem and delicious food. The evening incorporated a festive fundraising dinner with a fun mystery game. [More including a list of our fabulous volunteers and actors!]
 

Everything orchids
Dazzling orchids were on display when Norm Selander-Carrier, past president of the N.H. Orchid Society led a workshop on February 18 at the Red Barn. Norm shared his vast knowledge and experience and made re-potting look easy.  In addition, participants received expert troubleshooting advice on how to avoid and solve common problems. Norm pointed out that more often than not, the problem is either too much or too little water and/or light. A fabulous book and orchid were donated by Ann Davis and Norm and given as door prizes. The event was co-sponsored by the WCA and Wilmot Garden Club. Thank you to the Wilmot Garden Club for the delicious, homemade refreshments!
