Friday Afternoon Club Part II: Ciscoe Clowns for Helpline

By Chris Henry
South Kitsap Helpline and supporters will host a fund-raising event Sunday to help with the purchase of the Port Orchard Nursery. The event will feature King 5 TV personality and master gardener Ciscoe Morris, known for his off-the-wall humor.
Earlier this month, Helpline was awarded a $300,000 grant from the Birkenfeld Trust through the Seattle Foundation. The grant will allow the food bank to make a down payment on the property, which has been for sale by the Greseth family.
The campaign to raise additional funds for the purchase will kick off with a Garden Festival from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday at the nursery, 1012 Mitchel Avenue.
There will be a vendor fair featuring gifts, flowers, plants and garden art held in the nursery parking lot. Free classes and workshops for children will also be offered throughout the event. Food and beverages will be available for purchase.
Ciscoe will speak from 4 to 5 p.m. Tickets to the talk are $25 and include a reception from 5 to 6 p.m.
For more information and to make reservations for the Ciscoe Morris event, call (360) 876-4089.

  1. I’m sorry I can’t be there… I’d sure like to ask Ciscoe about the difference between the sacked compost he used to beautify his garden and the compost some folks buy by the yard, bulk.

    It sounds like a wonderful time in store for everyone.
    If anyone wants to donate to the cause, where would they send the money?
    Have fun… Sharon O’Hara

  2. Sharon,
    You can send the money to SK Helpline at their downtown address: 1351 Bay Street, Port Orchard, WA 98366.

    We are selling copper and bronze leaves for $50, that can be inscribed – In memory of….; In honor of….; the ________ family; etc.

    The leaves will be part of a larger Giving Tree.
