Carnegie Arts Center Garden Walk

Next week, we are going to be a participant in the Carnegie Art Center's Annual garden Walk fundraiser! We have been hard at work replanting our rose garden (with thanks to the Friends of the Library for purchasing the new roses and mulch!) and are in the progress of working on the many other garden areas located on the grounds. The St. John's Lutheran Church brass band has been booked to provide some hopping entertainment as well!

The Garden Walk is a garden party fundraiser held annually by the Carnegie Arts Center, and it is a wonderful bloom-food-and-art-filled evening! A number of area gardens are spruced up for the participants to enjoy, followed by a grand finale dinner and fine art auction, with all proceeds going to the Carnegie Art Center. The art center is a treasure our community is lucky to have. I have participated in the walk the past 3 years, and it makes for quite a delightful evening. So grab a friend (or two!) and mark the calendar!

Tickets to the event are $25 and can be purchased
by contacting the Carnegie Arts Center at
762-4571 or 204 W. 4th St.
The walk will be held next Thursday
July 15th and begins at 5:00pm.
