STERLING – A garden party for women of all ages will be at 6 p.m. Monday at Trinity United Methodist Church, 205 E. 10th St.

Master Gardeners Cheryle Colmark and Susan Williams will discuss fairy gardens, and will help participants make one of their own. Those attending may bring a dish or basket to use and any small figurines or items they would like to add to their garden. Plants, moss, and dirt will be provided. Additional items will be available for those who do not bring their own.

Dinner will be served.

Tickets are $7. They can be purchased at the church, or by calling 815-441-1988 or 815-441-8652. Door prizes will be given away.

Donations are needed for the School Supply Closet, 910 Second Ave. More than 800 students received supplies in the 2013-14 school year, and the goal is to help 1,200 students in 2014-15. Although the store will close for the summer, supplies are available for summer students. Call one of the above numbers. The store will reopen in the middle of July.
