I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the American Association of University Women and the five residents who shared with the community their green thumbs at this year’s annual garden tour, which was held July 16.
Approximately 430 people attended the 20th annual Garden Tour sponsored by the James-town Branch, American Association of University Women on Wednesday. This is the largest crowd to ever attend the annual tour.
Visitors came from 21 North Dakota towns, seven states and Zambia,
Jamestown residents don’t have far to drive Wednesday to see plant species from England, Africa and Japan.
Five families volunteered their yards to show as part of the American Association of University Women’s annual garden tour, and their gardens include plants that are far from their places of origin.
The middle of July is always a special treat for Jamestown residents, and this year is no different. The Jamestown branch of American Association of University Women hosts its annual garden tour next Wednesday. Money derived from the event goes to help fund the AAUW’s Educational Foundation (which provides fellowships and grants to graduate women), its Legal Advocacy Fund (which supports plaintiffs challenging sexual discrimination in colleges and universities), and to the AAUW Endowment Fund at Jamestown College (which awards a yearly scholarship to an adult female student).
The Jamestown Branch of the American Association of University Women will be hosting the 20th annual Jamestown Garden Tour from 5 to 8 p.m. July 16.
Featured gardens this year include those of Van and Pattie Amundson, 802 Third St. N.E., Ken and Jan Cumber, 808 Third St. N.E., Carol Cannon, 603 Eighth Ave. S.E., Shanda Traiser, 305 21st Ave. N.E., and Mark and Mary Lou Urquhart, 1809 Third Ave. N.E.
