Colusa Celebrates May

[slideshow_deploy id=’70362′]

The collection of organizations joined to celebrate spring with the community of Colusa.

On Saturday, May 2, 2015, scores of individuals attended the annual May Surprise event that comprises a plant sale, quilt show, luncheon, wine tasting, and artisan fair.

Shoppers and garden enthusiasts browsed the plants, shrubs, and vegetables, prepared by the Garden Club of Colusa County during its annual plant. The available stock was hand selected and grown by garden club members, offering a pre-selection of Colusa County native plants.

Some shoppers were looking for plants, and others were seeking advice from the Colusa County Master Gardeners who provided an information booth. Most of the information provided by the Colusa County Master Gardeners is researched based materials from the University California.

Celebrating the preservation of its community heritage, the Colusa Heritage Preservation Commission recognized the restoration efforts of the 100-year-old Sacramento River Warehouse, which is now occupied by the Pacific Coast Threshold Company. In addition to providing historical information to attendees.

Hosting an array of artisans, the Colusa County Arts Council held its annual Artisan fair that featured several vendors showcasing handmade jewelry, pottery, apparel, paintings, birdhouses, soaps and much more.

The Pacific Flyway Quilters held a quilt show featuring a small group of quilts and provided a lunch during the event.

As the day came to a conclusion, The Friends of the Library held wine and cheese tasting to raise funds for the Colusa County Library. The event is the organization’s largest fundraiser that helps the local library purchase books, purchase supplies and provide funding for reading programs.
