199June 10th Garden Tour/Larchmont median strip fundraiser volunteer outreach
- Jun 2, 2006Dear Friends,
We are asking you to volunteer as a docent for the Windsor Square-Hancock
Park Historical Society Olive Branches Garden Tour on Saturday June 10th, which
is a collaborative effort that will benefit all of us. All proceeds from
the event will go towards creating the median on Larchmont from Beverly to
Melrose, The median will help beautify North Larchmont, slow down the speeding
and make it safer to cross with crosswalks.. You would be in a lovely garden
for a 3 hour assignment sometime between 12 noon and 5 p.m., orientation
provided, of course, and then you will be able to view the 8 gardens for free.
Refreshments will be served. Please email Myrna Gintel at
or call 323-931-6252.
Thanks so much, Myrna Gintel, Karen and Mike Gilman
Sandy Boeck, one of the docents provides this additional background:
If you are available on Saturday, June 10th,
I hope that you will join friends and neighbors for
this very special garden tour! You will see
beautiful gardens and support a worthy cause
with your ticket purchase. Addresses of the
eight gardens are given to ticketholders on the
day of the tour to protect the security of the
homeowners. I can tell you that one is on the
stream in Brookside. Another is an enchanting
estate on the golf course with koi pond, greenhouse
,gazebo with finches, pool, and full vegetable garden
and 6 other wonderful unique gardens.
I will be a docent at the garden in Brookside
and hope to see you there!
Sandy Boeck, Brookside Secretary
P.S. Did you know that there are twenty-four homes on the Brookside stream?
This is your opportunity to see a beautifully landscaped garden on the
stream that was not on the Windsor Square-Hancock Park Home Tour in 1998 or The
Garden Conservancy Tour in 2003.
