Garden Tour Success a Win-Win for Clairemont
Big THANK YOU to the homeowners, volunteers, and of course the hundreds of ticket buyers who made this year's Clairemont Garden Tour one of our most successful ever! This year we had three garden categories to vote for your favorites: Ornamental Garden winner was Mr. Leland Fletcher, Water-Wise Garden was Bruce & Marlene Miller, and Edible Garden winner was Nele & Paul Berner. Congratulations!
For those who are unaware, the annual Clairemont Garden Tour is the Town Council's single largest fundraiser of the year -- in which proceeds go to fund community grants such as funding food packages for needy families through Community Christian Service Agency, various Boy/Girl Scout projects, the Clairemont Hilltoppers, and our most recent grant award was to help replace football helmets at Clairemont High School through their booster club.
The above reasons alone are well worth the participation, planning, and execution of a successful Garden Tour. For more information on our community grants, please visit our website: ClairemontOnline.com/Grants
Our June meeting is jam-packed with goodies! We'll be celebrating those winners of our 2013 Garden Tour, and State Senator Marty Block will join us for the first time and update us on state and local issues. Also, Holly Crawford, the Director of San Diego County Office of Emergency Services, will also present.
We look forward to seeing you at 7:00pm on Thursday, June 6th, in the Cadman Elementary cafeteria. Also, a head's up -- since the first Thursday of the month in July falls on Independence Day (July 4th), our July meeting will be the following Thursday on July 11th. Same time, same place.
Working for you, Clairemont!
