Mum Sale

It's hard to believe that fall is right around the corner!!!!  It's almost time to pick out your fall flowers and the Friends of Rocheport Mum Sale on September 12 - 14th will be the perfect opportunity to get some mums.

Not only can you get some beautiful mums, there will also be tomato relish, tickets to the Friends of Rocheport Chili Dinner and, hopefully, the new Friends of Rocheport t-shirts will be available for sale.

If you buy a ticket to the Friends of Rocheport Chili/Ham & Bean Dinner prior to November 8, you will be entered into a drawing for a free ham donated by Baumgartner's Boone County Cured Hams.  Tickets are $8.00 for adults and $4.00 for children under 12.
