The Meadows Home & Garden Club, in conjunction with the City of Meadows Place and the City's Parks and Recreation Department, thanks you for supporting the 2018 Spring Home & Garden Tour. We featured 7 beautiful homes/gardens and 1 garden and the City's new Nature and Discovery Center. Ticket sales amounted to almost $2,000. Donations from residents and area businesses amounted to almost $3,000. These funds will go into the Club's Scholarship Fund, the All-Inclusive Playground, and the Club's General Fund.
Special thanks go to Shirley and Alderman John Isbell, who co-hosted the event, and to the homeowners and many volunteer docents and babysitters. Also we thank the City and Colene Cabezas, Parks and Recreation Director, who opened the Nature and Discovery Center to the Tour and hosted a Spring Fling immediately following the Tour,
