Our thanks go out to all our hardworking volunteers and homeowners who participated in the first St. Anne's Hill Garden & Art Tour! The expanded garden tour event went off without a hitch, and we had beautiful weather all day long. The rain waited just long enough to cool our tired bodies after all the work was done. It was a big success all around.

Special thanks again to Lisa, Leah, and Deb for leading the charge. Kudos to the K12 Gallery, the artists, and the other vendors as well. They helped to create a fun atmosphere for residents and visitors alike. The DSPS also assisted by hosting the "Petal Power" art show and the starting point for the tour. Last but not least, many thanks to our generous sponsors!

The word on the street is that we had approximatly 750 paying customers, generating hundreds of dollars for our non-profit organization. These funds will help the St. Anne's Hill Historic Society operate over the next 18 months, until the 2009 Christmas Tour.

We also generated some great publicity for our neighborhood. These events not only bring visitors to our community, but they help raise awareness about sustainable historic properties in the Dayton region. Remember, the most environmentally-friendly building is the one that's already built!


In other news, don't forget that next Saturday, June 28, is our annual "Trash'n'Treasure" neighborhood yard sale, beginning at 8 a.m. sharp.

Tuesday, July 1 will hold our monthly membership meeting at 7 p.m. in the Liederkranz building. All are welcome to attend and find out more about St. Anne's Hill!
