2018 Garden Tour and Faire - June 24
Garden Tour Recap from Marlene Peterson!
The McMinnville Garden Club sold 546 tickets this year out of a total of 600! Members are to be congratulated.
Thanks to Faire Committee; Mike, Gaye and Ruth who signed up a record number of booths (68!) for this years Garden Faire. This was our biggest Faire and we stretched 2 blocks from 1st and Cowls.
The club has made a beautiful profit of almost $11,000. But more importantly, the club members have donated not just money but, even more important, their time and a tremendous effort to make this years event a success. It started with Benita’s beautiful painting, carried on with Lori’s and Melinda ‘s banner decorations to the solid support of each committee chair. Added to that each one of you gave so much more. There were countless hours spent on graphics, ticket distribution and sales and people who gave and kept track of money in and money out.
My best co-chairs ever, Ann and Susanne, who kept me enthused and organized. Solid, kind and dedicated garden club members who worked harder than any of you will ever know about.
The wrap up for committee chairs will be July 24th.
Now, we need someone to please step up and be next years Tour Chair.
(It’s fun, it’s frustrating at times, but it’s always fun.)
I love our McMinnville Garden Club!!!!
