Grand Garden: Be A Part Of Something Grand

by Susan Garot, Executive Director

We have selected the “art” piece we’ll be using for the donor recognition for the Grand Garden and hope you love it like we do.  Thanks to Skyline Exhibit Resource for their creativity.

Grand Garden Donor Recognition sign

All donors at the $500 level and above will have their name on the “spray” (as in the fountain spray that is part of our logo), and anyone donating by May 31 will be included. The spray will be unveiled at the donor appreciation event which is scheduled for Thursday, September 7, 2017.

The construction process has been aided with the above average temperatures this winter and hard hat tours will soon be scheduled as we move closer to completion.
