This Friday, June 14, will be a great day to shop at Gossett Nursery. On that day, the nursery will donate part of the daily sales to the Lewisboro Relay for Life event that is scheduled to take place on June 21.
This is a great charity for a worthy cause and Gossett Nursery is proud to take part of this local event. If you are in the market for something for your garden, home or landscape, stop in this Friday and get quality plants, trees, shrubs and garden supplies while helping your neighbors and friends.
Below you will find an event schedule from the Relay for Life website. If you have the time, stop by the John Jay High School track to witness and participate in this moving event.
