CANAL DAYS is coming!  Although it seems as if spring and
gardening weather will never get here, SHS is gearing up for the
annual sale.  This year, the sale will be held on June 1, 2-8 p.m.,
and June 2, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. at 105 Point Street behind the museum
in Saltsburg.  Please note that the sale ends on Saturday this year;
we will not be set up on Sunday as in previous years.
For more
information, email fordycelr@yahoo.com or call 724-668-8808.  


TROPICAL MILKWEED!  The seedlings are doing well.  For
those interested in attracting monarch butterflies, tropical
milkweed is a magnet for them.  Three colors will be available:
Silky Gold, Silky Scarlet, and Silky Deep Red.  Please contact SHS
to reserve your plants; they tend to sell out.  We will also have
other varieties of milkweeds sure to make all butterflies happy.

We will also have favorites such as Candy Corn, Dancing Dolphin
Vine, Million Kisses Begonias, and Pumpkin on a Stick.

NEW THIS YEAR:  Cotton, Tangerine Cream calendula, Swiss
strawflowers.  Check back for updates as the sale nears.















In conjunction with the Saltsburg Historical Society and the
Rebecca Haddon Museum, we are listing a book for sale:
