Bring a dish to share for the buffet and make sure to bring a gift for the raffle!
Please note: American Legion Post 111 has two parking lots, a small lot for its bar and a larger lot adjacent to Flora St for the event hall. Our entrance is accessible from the larger lot.
The Legion’s parking lot is not directly accessible from Florida Ave, but it can be seen to the right of the main event hall. You can access parking by either turning onto Flora St from Florida Ave or by turning onto Dearborn Ave from Sligh Ave.
Tampa Bay RFCI will be at the USF Botanical Gardens Plant Sale on Saturday & Sunday, April 11 & 12, 2020
(No regular meeting this month.)
This plant sale is a major fundraiser for our club and a great opportunity for members to learn more about the plants we love and grow. And it’s FUN!
Volunteers will be needed on Friday to unload plants and set up our sale area.
Sale hours are from 10 to 4 on Saturday and 11 to 3 on Sunday. Members who work 2 full days get a sweet discount toward the purchase of any plants left at the end of the sale.
The Botanical Gardens are located on the University of South Florida Campus, at 12210 USF Pine Drive, Tampa, FL 33612. Easiest access is from Bruce B. Downs, turning into the campus at the first light north of Fowler, then follow the signs (and the crowds)!
