Bi-annual Garden Tour Going Ahead July 11 —
After much discussion, the Williams Lake Garden Club has decided to go ahead with its bi-annual, self-guided garden tour. If you like flowers, mark July 11 (10 a.m.to 4 p.m.) on your calendar.
The tour showcases the region’s loveliest flower gardens in Russett Bluff and Williams Lake proper. Participation is by donation and jars will be available at each garden. Tickets are recommended and can be reserved by contacting Nola at (250) 392-6858. Tickets will be emailed or mailed and include a map showing the location and description of each garden. At each garden there will also be quilts, music, pottery, paintings, or garden art for your enjoyment.
Proceeds will go to a local charity.
The garden tour is taking a variety of safety measures to ensure visitors are safe. Hand sanitizer will be available at the entrance to each garden. Masks will be worn by the volunteers and visitors may wear masks at their discretion. The Williams Lake Garden Club will be ensuring that the appropriate number of people will be allowed into each garden, and a volunteer will be circulating to be sure social distancing is in effect.
The club is hosting its bi-annual garden tour thanks to the volunteer efforts of the tour co-ordinator, Deb Radolla. Thank you in advance to those wonderful gardeners who have agreed to open their gardens for viewing.
The Williams Lake Garden Club meets once a month and offers sessions that appeal to all gardeners, new and experienced. For more information about the Williams Lake Garden Club, including the tour, follow the group on Facebook and watch for posters about the event.
Hope to see you there!
