5th Annual Harrison Garden Tour


 This year’s garden tour held Aug. 26 was another success; all of the gardens were at their peak and each had its own unique style. A huge thank you to the following homeowners for allowing us to tour their gardens: Dena Wood, Beth and Richard Kindermann, Kristi and Ernie Teall, Kim and Brook Woods, Bill and Debbie Mason. This year the gardens of Kristi and Ernie Teall were voted the most favorite garden.

Thank you to all the garden tour volunteers, who made this tour possible; Rob Guay, Kellie Smith, Marlene Williams, Linda Schettenhelm, William Mason, Chris Jensen, Sharon Hawkins, Jackie Bradley, Sandi Bobo and Audrey Stuhle.

A special shout out and many thanks to Walraven’s Country Gardens, Tamarack Golf Course and Jackpine Restaurant for providing door prizes for the event.

Proceeds from the sale of the tickets fund local garden projects, such as the Veterans Freedom Park. If you have a garden you would like to highlight in a future garden tour, please contact Harrison City Hall at 989-539-7145

The Annual Harrison Garden Tour kicks off the Harrison Street Fair, which is held the last full weekend of every August. Make sure to mark your calendar for next year’s garden tour, which will be held on Thursday, Aug. 25.
