Garden tour a great success

Our “Island Treasures” garden tour held on Saturday, June 27, was a great success and we appreciate the local support. We want to thank Baker’s Pharmacy and the Secret Garden for selling tickets and The Jamestown Press for supplying maps.

We were fortunate to have a bright sunny day to visit the 11 gardens on the tour. We thank the participating garden owners for opening their lovely properties to all our visitors. Many came from out of state.

Everyone was impressed by the beauty of the island and especially the beauty and diversity of the gardens. The profits from approximately 250 visitors will be used for civic beautification projects here on the island. Thanks for helping us celebrate our 60th year.
