We are trying something new this year by skipping our Flower Sale and concentrating on a Fern Sale! The ferns we had last year were tremendously popular and we had some disappointed people when we ran out. So, this year, plan to stop by and visit us, check out what's happening here, and pick up a fern or two! Ferns really perk up a porch or a deck and they make splendid Mother's Day gifts! They should be ready May 2nd, and we will post on our website and Facebook when selling begins.

Rummage Sale in North Lima

Just up the street (or down the street, I guess, depending on your point of view) from GG is Mount Olivet Church, right at the corner of routes 164 & 165. Their annual spring rummage sale is the first weekend in May. All money raised goes to their Women’s Guild, to be used both at their church and throughout the community. It's a win-win for all - you find bargains at good prices, gently used items get a new life instead of a trip to the landfill, and the money goes on to help others. Check them out and have fun shopping!

Crown Theater's Annie Jr.

Did you know that some of our GG clients are also actors? We have talented people here, who love to get out into the community to spread the joy of community theater. Take a trip to Columbiana's Main Street Theater on May 4th or 5th to enjoy a fun-filled performance of the beloved musical, Annie! We are so proud of our own Dustin and Tori as well as all the other actors and volunteers who make these shows possible.
