“Birds and bees: everything for the garden” is the theme of this year’s Waldo County General Hospital Aid spring raffle.

Birds will enjoy the large ceramic bird bath, wooden birdhouse, bird seed, and handmade stoneware bird feeder, while you can identify them with the included book, Birds of North America.

Gardeners will delight in items such as gardening tools, decorations, plant pot, butterfly net, watering can, knee pads, seeds, bulbs, wind chimes and a book on growing perennials, all in a large wicker basket.

The basket was donated to the Hospital Aid by the Shamrock, Thistle and Rose gift shop. All other items were given by Aid members. The value of the prize is more than $250.

Raffle items are on display at the hospital gift shop in the lobby of Waldo County General Hospital, 118 Northport Ave., Belfast. Tickets are available in the shop for $1 each or six for $5. The winner will be drawn at the Hospital Aid’s annual meeting Wednesday, May 19. All proceeds benefit the hospital. For more information, call 930-6739.
