The Bunn Garden Club is proud to announce that club member and artist, Diane Cannon of Franklinton, North Carolina, completed a mural on the Bunn Garden Club clubhouse. The mural depicts flowers and the red cardinal which is representative of the club  logo.

Said Sherrie Towne of Bunn Garden Club, “We are excited to add another colorful and cheerful mural to the community.”

Artist Diane Cannon completed the mural a few weeks ago, with it photographed for the first time during the Club’s recent Outdoor Fall Vendor Fest. During the festival, visitors had the opportunity to check out the new mural.

This Fest fundraiser included nine vendor tents and close to a dozen booths, offering products and brand-name pieces for sale. Club members also raffled off themed baskets of goods, including baked goods and garden items.

Social distancing and mask wearing were practiced during the Outdoor Fall Vendor Fest, the club’s only 2020 fundraiser. Due to the pandemic, the club was unable to hold a 2020 spring plant sale, nor their annual stew sale this year.  Funds raised are used to cover clubhouse costs, maintain the Bunn Garden Club facility and grounds, and fund yearly community projects.

Each Spring, Bunn Garden Club holds a sale of locally grown plants, propagated by garden club members and friends. The sale includes  azaleas, rhododendron, day lilies, irises, and many other colorful flowers and shrubs. The hope is to hold the Spring Plant Sale fundraiser in April 2021 (the date is not yet set).

For those interested in joining the Club, donating, or suggesting a community project, reach out (message) the Bunn Garden Club via Facebook and Follow for Facebook updates — including plant sale information next Spring.

To view the mural: drive by or visit the Bunn Garden Club, located at 361 Hwy 98 West, Bunn, NC — across from the Franklin County Sherriff’s substation.

The purpose of the Bunn Garden Club is to provide the opportunity for members to increase their knowledge in care and use of flowers, trees, shrubs, and wildlife to enhance landscaping and beautification at their homes and in their communities.
