Monsoon Madness Three

July 10th dawned on the Extension Office parking lot with Robin Weesner and Cathy Michener resting peacefully in their sleeping bags.  Their job was to guard the plants and trees for Monsoon Madness three.

Once again the Master Gardener Association pulled off a perfect fundraising sale on a perfect day with of course, the traditional afternoon monsoon thunderstorms.

This year's event drew a crowd of 687 people and plenty of sales.  The tool sharpening service also attracted quite a few customers.  Revenue was slightly below last years. 

Revenue from the sales has purchased 4 Ezy-up canopies and a bullhorn.  Watch your ears at the next MGA meeting when Bob Burke takes the podium.

We would like to thank all of the Master Gardener volunteers who made Monsoon Madness three possible.
