Thank you to the generous Ned Chapman and his team at Sunnyside Gardens and the wonderful vendors who provided a lovely Sunny Days Are Here Again event on Friday, May 13 at Sunnyside. What a great way to kick off thinking about the July 10 Secret Gardens Tour, and to start getting our own gardens ready for summer. A portion of proceeds from the evening will benefit the programs and projects supported by Soroptimists.
