2015 Joyful Garden Tour
A Wonderful Success!
The weather was beautiful, the gardens vibrant, and thanks to the generosity of Christ Church parishioners and our many friends who strolled the historic Crescent-McDaniel garden paths, the Joyful Garden Tour presented a check for $94,000 to the Vestry on August 25, 2015. Two (green) thumbs up to the dedication and hard work of over 300 volunteers, 45 artists, and almost 900 visitors who made the 2015 Tour a tremendous success.
The Joyful Garden Tour is extremely grateful to Rosalind & John Mills for hosting the sponsors’ party, Cindy & David Freeman, Libby & Bill Kehl, Chesnee & Matthew Klein, Elizabeth & Jacob Mann, Esta & Bill McCrary and Nancy & Phil Peterson for opening their unique and spectacular gardens, as well as to the talented grounds staff of Christ Church for their continuing care of our church campus. It was a day of fun, fellowship, and flowers – a blooming success you might say – all for a wonderful cause!
Under the leadership of Beth Croft and the Grounds Committee, the funds raised by the 2012, 2013 and 2015 Joyful Garden Tours are slowly restoring our 13 acre campus, creating a spiritual, restful and beautiful place. While the flowers and new landscaping brighten the grounds on a daily basis, the most significant transformation will occur slowly as the 57 new trees begin to mature and restore our grounds to their original historic beauty. Thanks to all for your support!
