Wachusett Region Recycling Events-3/31/12


We’ve had a virtually snowless winter so it’s easy to get at your garden. Consider donating plants that are getting overgrown to the Wachusett Garden Club’s annual plant sale. The club is looking for donations of perennial plants and bulbs for the sale to be held on Saturday, May 12, 2012. Contact the club at 774-239-7151 or onlinewgc@yahoo.com if you’d like them to do the digging or to pick up your donation. Donations should be made by May 5, 2012.

These are the last few days to donate your gently-used prom dresses to Anton’s Cleaners for their Belle of the Ball Prom Dress Drive. In 2012, it runs from February 1st to April 1st. Anton’s will take your donation, clean it, and make it available on ’boutique day’ to a girl who otherwise could not afford a dress.
