As summer winds down, it’s time to fall into my favorite season in the Northland!  Join us this week as we explore the Rose Garden and the Lakewalk.
We will meet on Wednesday, September 7 at 1 pm at the parking lot by the Rose Garden on 13th Avenue East and London Road. After checking out the Rose Garden, we will walk on the paved Lakewalk.
If you would rather skip the walk, there are benches in the park and along the Lakewalk and in Leif Erickson Park. Here’s to sunshine shimmering on our beautiful lake!

Tour of Homes & Gardens

Thank you for making the 2022 DWC Tour of Homes & Gardens a resounding success!  
None of this would have been possible without the dedicated club volunteers and our club Administrator, Jeri, who tirelessly met the challenges of the many details.
The DTA bus turnaround was converted into an outdoor dining area, with special menus offered by local food trucks from Valentini’s, Oasis del Norte and Love Creamery. The vendors were thrilled.
Now for the GREAT NEWS! 406 tickets were sold for a total of $16,240! On top of that, our sponsors pledged  $4,700 in donations, for a grand total of $20,950!!! Of course, there were some expenses for engraved stone gifts to homeowners and many new signs and date patches for a little over $500.
Not bad for a “day’s work”, ladies!
It was a sincere pleasure working with all of you,
Ellie Dryer and Betty Sola, co-chairs
