Please help me congratulate the three lucky winners in our recent prize drawing held by Buffalo-NiagaraGardening.com. They are:
- Dina Volpe of Cheektowaga
- Ellen Joyce of Cheektowaga
- Cheryl Stoyle of New Jersey (She visited the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens several years ago when on a camping trip and can’t wait to visit Western New York again!)
The names were drawn at random.
Everyone who was subscribed to Buffalo-NiagaraGardening.com by March 23 was entered into the drawing.
I’m happy to welcome so many new subscribers!
Even readers who subscribed years ago were included in the drawing. I love my loyal readers, too!
Each of the winners receives a prize package worth more than $250 that includes all of these prizes:
- Five different houseplants planted in a seven-inch ceramic bowl, finished with decorative stone and accented with fresh cut flowers, plus a $20 gift certificate from Mischler’s Florist and Greenhouses, 118 South Forest Rd., Williamsville.
- A $50 gift certificate toward a BigYellowBag or other product from Lakeside Sod, 6660 Goodrich Road, Clarence Center.
- A one-year family membership to the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens. If you are already a Botanical Gardens member, your membership will be extended one year!
