HADS will provide sandwiches from Sorrentino’s Deli and water and a selection of sodas. Door prizes are Marge’s fantastic seedlings, so come ready to dig up your selection!

Bring a friend, a salad or dessert to share and a folding chair. It’s sure to be a fun time and many of us will get to go home with a new wonderful daylily!
