TRADE SECRETS is an annual rare plant and garden antiques event benefiting Women’s Support Services. LEARN MORE

Over a decade ago, we became underwriters of Trade Secrets. The decision was an easy one. The mission at Women’s Support Services continues to be crucial. Our recent involvement in a documentary that focuses on addiction and trauma, has made us increasingly aware of how bullying and abuse impact health outcomes over a person’s lifetime. WSS’s work and commitment to educate and address some of these issues is more important now than ever. Our small, but vibrant community is so fortunate to have an organization filled with dedicated staff, employees and volunteers. 2020 marks the 20th anniversary of Trade Secrets. We look forward to supporting this amazing organization for the next twenty.
