Tri-Valley Developmental Services is having its’ bi-annual Gardener’s Christmas Auction on Saturday, March 30 from 9:30 a.m. to noon.
It is a silent auction and plant sale which will feature annuals, garden tools, silk bouquets, and home and garden decor, TVDS Horticultural Therapist Barb McCord told the Chamber attendees Thursday morning.
Donations of gently used gardening items are sought by March 22 for the Compost Bin Market, which is part of the fundraiser.
The Gardeners Christmas Auction will benefit the Horticulture Therapy Program, which serves those with intellectual disabilities.
The Fort Scott Chamber of Commerce members take turns hosting a weekly coffee where they can tell about upcoming events.
During the March 14 coffee, Knights of Columbus Member Mark McCoy presented TVDS Executive Director Tim Cunningham with a check in the amount of $932. 67.
Cunningham told fortscott.biz the donation will be put in the foundation funds that supports TVDS and used “to build homes” for the clients, he said.
Cunningham noted that TVDS has been in Fort Scott since 1978 offering services to people with developmental disabilities.
There will be a golf tournament fundraiser on Sept. 14 at Woodland Hills Golf Course in Fort Scott, Cunningham said.
