Just in time, the weeping cherry tree blossoms dressed up the grounds for the St. Patty's Day Warm Up! The weather was perfect and many took advantage to enjoy a picnic with family or friends. Thanks to all who organized and worked this event!
Weymouth will be downtown in Southern Pines on Saturday!
Come out this Saturday to the Marketplace on Sunrise Square! Marybeth Poplyk, the Sunrise Executive Director, kindly invited us to join about 20 local vendors and set up a stall at the March 20th market and we will have a great selection of all things Weymouth for purchase including some of our special Dirt Gardener-propagated plants. Women of Weymouth will work the Weymouth tent from noon-4pm. We are delighted to partner with The Sunrise Theater, another great non-profit, for this event. Come support home-grown artisans, businesses, and non-profits and be certain to visit our many unique downtown shops and restaurants. What a great way to kick off spring! Masks required. Click here for details.
As the weather warms and the State mandate allows, we will be hosting more of our regular events. Keep a look out on the calendar for the James Boyd Book Club (all welcome) meeting on the patio in April, Women of Weymouth meetings with lectures and lunch, Musicians Jam Session, and other upcoming events.
As always, thank you all for supporting this landmark institution.
Kathryn Talton President, Friends of Weymouth Board of Directors

Dirt Gardeners seek useful garden items.
Spring cleaning?
