A Few of the Homes We’ve Visited in Past Years…
The Friends first offered a House and Garden Tour in 2008. It was chaired by Dave Pachla and Frank and Kathy Smith. There were approximately 50 people in attendance.
The second year the tour was chaired by Diane Leah and Pam Scavera. Approximately 85 people attended.
The following year is when the tour really took-off. Pam Scavera and Kathy Riggins began chairing the event and have done so every year since. They added a Friends Brunch before the tour and a gardening lecture after the tour to make it an an all-day affair and fundraiser for the library.
