Kate Colville, our program chairman put together a day of fellowship in a beautiful garden along with fine food. The Stan Hywet Gardens are in Akron, Ohio, a two hour drive. So much for fellowship. Left Wexford at 8 am and carpooled arriving while it was cool and comfortable to walk through some of the most beautiful gardens to be seen. We then toured the house "mansion" followed by lunch. Here are some of the photos the gals took.
