Great thanks to the Mattapoisett Women’s Club for their well-organized masterpiece on Saturday, June 28th. The Garden Tour was quintessential New England with panoramic views of the bay and woodlands from some of the most spectacular gardens in the greater New Bedford area.
I know organizing and executing a garden tour can be a daunting endeavor, but these ladies within the Garden Club made it appear effortless—a sure sign of a well-managed tour that had all of its bases covered. The tour proved to be richly rewarding for everyone involved.
The benefits were many: Scholarship funds were raised. It was an opportunity for people in and outside the community to socialize and get to know one another better. Seeing what other homeowners do with their property might inspire the reluctant gardener to try out new ideas. But the biggest reward was seeing the event come off smoothly and watching visitors enjoy what you folks and your volunteers made possible. Congratulations on a job done well!
