The Winters Friends of the Library (WFoL) once again would like to thank the Winters Community for their support of our annual Fruit Tree fundraising event. This year, we were essentially sold out of trees by 11 am; raised approximately $5775 in tree sales; and, gained 25 new members.
We want to thank Sierra Gold Nurseries of Yuba City for their ongoing donation of fruit trees; Mariani Nut Company for allowing us the use of their parking lot on Railroad; Winters Aggregate for contributing potting soil to help get the trees off to a good start; City of Winters for including our event in the newsletter found in the monthly water bill which every resident receives, and Winters Express for publishing our articles about our event.
Many thanks to the Yolo County Master Gardeners for providing information to our customers on how best to grow their trees; and to Wolfskill Career Readiness Academy, Winters Joint Unified School district for allowing two students an opportunity to serve their community.
A very special thank you to John, Karla, and Lyle Knabke for retrieving the trees from Yuba City, staging the trees in preparation for tagging, and delivering them the day of the event.
Finally, our sincerest appreciation to all the WFoL volunteers who so expertly assisted in making the tree sale happen and to our Winters, Davis, Dixon, and Vacaville communities who purchased trees.
The money raised from this event helps support ongoing programming, purchase of equipment, and improvements to the Winters Community Library.
Winters Friends of the Library is seeking a fruit tree event chair person for 2021. If you are interested please contact WFoL volunteer coordinator Carol Scianna at firstname.lastname@example.org.
