Visitors will be able to see 10 local gardens in and around the city as well as view the many quilts on display made by local quilters.

The tour is one day only — Saturday, July 7 — and runs from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  Tickets are $10 per person and children under six are free. All money raised is donated to two local organizations. This year’s recipients are the Women’s Contact Society and the Hough Memorial Cancer Society.

Tickets are now on sale at The Open Book and Ibea’s Quilt Shop on Oliver Street and at Just Because Ladies’ Wear beside the post office.  Instructions for finding each garden are included on the ticket.
