One thought on “Welcome!”

  1. Yesterday we were fortunate enough to participate in the Garden and Gourmet Tour. It was a delightful day from the moment we arrived to the moment the day ended. The efforts of all the volunteers who planned and executed this event has to be acknowledged as being truly remarkable. Your talents are greatly appreciated. Thank you for giving us exceptional value for our entertainment dollar and a day excursion that will be a lasting memory guaranteed to always bring a smile.
