18th Annual Water Garden Tour
Saturday, July 20, 2013
Another very successful tour is now one for the books. The weatherman provided us with a bright, sunny albeit warm day. Approximately 150 people toured the 8 ponds and gardens. This year we asked attendees to vote for their favorite pond: Judy Anderson/Tom Leffler was voted the favorite with Neil & Laurie Barrick second, and Ken & Kathy Waller third.
We once again partnered with Des Moines Area Religous Council. This year we collected more food and increased the money collected to $77. Thank you to all who donated.
A special thank you to our corporate sponsors: Created in Johnston, Ted Lare Design and Build of Cummings, Just Add Water of Ankeny, The Pond and Landscape Store of Johnston, Capital Landscape of Des Moines, Aqualand Pets of Des Moines, and Landscapes by Design of Slater. Additional thank yous to The Pond and Lanscape Store for providing lunch to all the attendees and to Created in Johnston for designing our host gift.
Congradulations to Caroline S. of Clive, a first time attendee, winner of the Greenbriar Restaurant gift certificate.
Finally a BIG thank you to all the volunteers who worked so hard to make our tour such a succeess. Without you it could not be done.
Plans are already under way for the 2014 tour when we will be featuring ponds and gardens in the Ankeny, Saylorville, and Polk City areas, so mark your calendars for July 19 and we will see you then.
