On behalf of the Hudson Garden Club, we would like to thank the community for its continued support of our annual Home & Garden Tour. At the top of our list are the home and garden owners who allowed over 1,200 guests to enjoy their beautiful properties; the tour would simply not be possible without them!
Also important are the over 500 volunteers who donate countless hours, plants and cookies to make these two days a reality. This army of dedicated individuals is indispensable. Thanks also to the Hudson City Schools and the city of Hudson officials who are always so accommodating. Another group that deserves thanks is our sponsors -- the businesses who advertised in our ticket booklet. Please consider stopping by and supporting them as they supported us, enabling our tradition of giving to continue!
The Home and Garden Tour is the major fundraiser of the HGC. Because of the tour's success, the Garden Club is able to provide grants and scholarships, to sponsor youth programs for the schools, to plant and maintain civic gardens, and donate books to the library and trees to the city. Last year the club was able to give over $30,000 back to the community.
Plans are now under way for 2015 -- our 68th tour! If you would like to nominate a home/garden (or offer yours) for this tour, please call 330-650-4209 by July 7.
Lois James and Cindy Nygaard, Hudson
