NORWICH – Hospice and Palliative Care of Chenango County held one component of its annual Spring Plant Sale Wednesday in Weiler Park, pick-up times for those individuals and businesses who placed their plant orders in advance running from mid-morning through the early afternoon. Customers located in Afton, Bainbridge, Greene, Oxford and Sherburne were able to pick their plants up at their local NBT Bank branch Wednesday afternoon.
Hospice is a nonprofit health care agency that serves individuals with life limiting illness and has been active in Chenango County since 1991.
The Spring Plant Sale is the biggest fundraiser of the year for Hospice, orders solicited from the general public as well as internal sales from more than 50 schools and businesses throughout the county.
“The whole field was covered with plants today,” said Clinical Outreach and Volunteer Coordinator Kendall Drexler as she pointed to the almost cleared field. “This is a really huge help.”
