HSM seeks plants, offers history scavenger hunt

Got plants?

The Historical Society of the Town of Middletown is seeking perennials from area gardens to populate new beds being established around the HSM hall.

Gardeners are invited to drop off plants at the HSM table at the May 11 all-day Margaretville Garden Fest. Both shade and sun loving plants are welcome; irises and day lilies that would thrive along the pond would also be appreciated.

Plants can also be dropped off at the hall, 778 Cemetery Rd., Margaretville, on Saturday, May 25 from 9 to noon.

Those who stop at the HSM Garden Fest table will also have an opportunity to pick up a new Visual Scavenger Hunt of Margaretville. Players of all ages can test their observational skills by identifying 16 photographic details of Main Street buildings for a chance to win tickets to a Labor Day weekend concert by the 77th Regimental Balladeers.

The winning entry will be drawn July 4 at the opening of “Middletown in the Civil War,” an exhibit which will run through September 2.
