    2017 Pansy Day – what a blast!

    We had a great day of activities on Pansy Day, April 8th!  This year we had a whole schedule of new events and activities for both kids and adults.

    For Kids – there were Pony Rides, lawn games, Story Time, a scavenger hunt, and face paintingFor Adults we had Pansies (of course!) in flats as well as planters and baskets (Easter is on its way!); planting and garden workshops and exhibits, including a quilt show and the Needham Art Association gallery show.  The Schoolhouse became the Needham General Store, with baked goods, penny candy, the gift shop, hot dogs, a popcorn machine, and free coffee.

    We will do it all again next April, so be sure to join us!  Pansies will be on sale at the Society until April 15th, or until we run out (and they’re going fast!)  We  encourage everyone in Needham to grow pansies in celebration of our town!

    And thanks to our Pansy Day Sponsor —
