On behalf of all Garden Club members, I extend a warm THANK YOU to the wonderful guests that attended our Ninth Annual Garden Tour on July 15th. We enjoyed the most fabulous weather for touring and the gardens were spectacular. We have had the most amazing feedback from those that toured. Everyone loved the variety of gardens; many also commented on the vendor's village with the selection of handmade crafts and the BBQ food truck ended the tour offering a yummy lunch...what a day it was! A special thank you to the homeowners for sharing their lovely gardens with us. All monies raised from the tour will be distributed locally to help support our garden-related projects. Be sure to check back on our website in the coming months for details on the 2018 Garden Tour...it will be special, we'll be celebrating our 10th Anniversary!
Our dreams of a Blue Star Marker to honor American Veterans both past and present for their service is now a reality. This project is a joint venture between Southern Butler County Garden Club and the Butler Garden Club. This beautiful marker will be installed adjacent to the front entrance of our new VA Healthcare Facility on Duffy Road in Butler, PA. On Tuesday, September 26, 2017, we will dedicate this marker during a ceremony at the site. Please join us to celebrate this National Garden Club project, right here in our own backyard! More details on our Facebook page as the dedication date nears.
...And I'm proud to be an American, where at least I know I'm free. And I won't forget the men who died, who gave that right to me. -Lee Greenwood
