Escaping Cabin Fever for Spring Fever

Escaping Cabin Fever for Spring Fever

This Saturday, the Hagerstown Community College Alumni Association’s 15th annual flower show was held, drawing out a crowd of more than 2,200 people. Most of them were there to escape the cabin fever of winter, browse information booths and to buy seedlings for upcoming spring planting.

According to the coordinator of alumni relations and annual giving, Lisa Stewart, every year people look forward to this event as it is one of the first sure signs of spring.

Stewart says, “The Flower and Garden Show hits a chord with people, people start getting the smell of spring in the air and they are excited to come out to get ideas and pick up tools and seeds and mulch. They start think about, ‘How do I want my yard to look this spring?'”

Beth Bryant visited the show for the first time this year and she says, “There is a lot of variety here, and I am happy to support local people.”

The money raised by the show goes to support local college projects.
