New Vineyard Public Library

Plant, Bake & Book Sale

(Black Fly Bash)

On Saturday, June 3, NV Public Library held its Annual Plant, Bake & Book Sale – fondly known as the Black Fly Bash. Yes – there were plenty to go around!

We had a wonderful array of plants – flowers, veggies and even indoor varieties– the Lilies that Helen Wilkey of Vienna provides, the plants from Attwood’s Nursery in New Portland, Robin’s Flower Pot in Farmington, Michelle Case in New Vineyard for their donations and of course those plants from our local gardeners!

Our army of bakers produced pies, breads (with relevant names to the Black Fly), cookies, cobblers, cakes and even a candy or two - all of which seemed to disappear very early on in the day.

And the books were a great hit as people got into the summer reading mode and had to take at least one book with them.

Thank you to all our contributors and customers for making this event such a success and supporting the NVPL mission. And a big thank you to Glenda and Dick Hargreaves for giving people the opportunity on Sunday to pick up a plant or two.

Great time in a great community. See you next year!!
