DRUMBO - Local green thumbs will want to check out the annual event from the Drumbo Agricultural Society. 

Come Bloom with Us is happening on Sunday February 4th at the Drumbo Agricultural Hall. Director with the Drumbo Ag society Margaret Verkuil says the event is a must attend for avid gardeners in Oxford County.
