As part of our mission and ministry, we celebrate our 23rd Annual GARDEN MARKET on May 1-2, 2020. During this two-day event, over 50 garden-related vendors from the tri-state area sell flowers and plants for spring planting. Over 4,000 visitors walk through our gates during our family friendly event.
The Garden Market is a yearly spring tradition that is important to the local community. We would find it difficult to manage such a large community event without the help of our sponsors and local neighbors. Together, we make this pleasant spring event happen.
Our collaboration enables us to help local neighbors blossom long after the Garden Market. Proceeds help fund ministry endeavors that benefit the local community year round. Thanks in part to the Garden Market:
- We have one of the largest food banks in Cecil County. Our Outreach Food Bank helps over 1200 needy families and 3,600 individuals each year. It is open on Mondays, Wednesdays & Saturdays 9:30AM –Noon—year-round.
- We distribute monies each year to local charities and organizations.
- Our Parish Center is an active meeting place for Scouts, seniors, 4-H, a chess club, and four recovery groups.
Many people recognize the Garden Market’s value to the community and want it to blossom and thrive. Some are unable to provide hands-on assistance to the production of this large event, so they choose to assist us by being a contributing sponsor. In this way, they help underwrite Garden Market expenses as a gift to our community.
Your generosity and partnership as a sponsor, combined with the committed effort of many parishioners and community members, enables us to continue with this yearly event for the benefit of many.
