Get ready for a stellar Garden Tour again this year! Gardens are being weeded and nurtured for your pleasure and amazement right now!
Thanks to all of our hard working gardeners! And we have been able to keep the ticket price down again. For $12 per person you will receive a ticket to all garden locations, and a description and map of the location of each garden.
You will find refreshments along the way, too, and lovely gardens in which to enjoy them. Bakers are contributing their delicacies at The NonChalant Cafe located at one of the Gardens. Coffee, tea, and lemonade will be waiting for you also.
Come out and support the League of Women Voters of Umpqua Valley and see lovely hidden gardens in our own Douglas County.
Tickets go on sale on May 15. Contact us for more information, 541-643-8113.
We’ve sent a letter to our faithful contributors and members. Please consider us for a yearend gift.
The League of Women Voters of Umpqua Valley has accomplished much in the past year. We’ve addressed gun safety, health care, mental health court, and the importance of services to young children. We recently sponsored an event at Umpqua Community College on Early Childhood Education and Care.
While we hold our annual membership drive at the end of each year, we would also like to reach out to those who would like to support our work with a year-end contribution.
This is an opportunity to bolster democracy in Douglas County by supporting an organization that does not promote or oppose political parties or candidates EVER. The League is an “issues” organization. We stand up for issues that affect all of us, from clean water to government transparency, to childhood education, and much more.
