Did you buy your ticket for Flower Power 2011? The Community Garden Walk and Reception is going to be our summer community event to remember. We have sold over 25 tickets so far ($10 each, this includes the Garden Walk and Reception).
The Walk will include a walk through our neighborhood to see the different gardens and backyards nominated for a Flower Power Award. Those that participate in the Walk will vote on the best front yards, back yards, and tree boxes. Those ballots will be tabulated and the winners will be announced a week after the Walk and Reception and given their awards at the next BACA meeting.
Our reception hosted, Laura Bowen at1500 First ST NWhas provided her beautifully renovated row house for the reception. Her home included a wrap around yard that makes some of us jealous. The reception will include appetizers, wine and we hope around 50 great neighbors.
When: Saturday, June 25th
Where: Garden Walk starts atFloridaAvenuePark. Walk groups will be coordinated between 4pm and 5pm. Groups of 10 – 12 will depart from this location at 4:15pm, 4:30pm, 4:45pm, and 5:00pm. Each group will visit the gardens nominated and vote on their favorites. In past walks, some of the nominees have bribed (I mean refreshed) the judges with cool lemonade, Mojitos, or fresh baked cookies. Cold bottled water will be provided at the starting point.
Reception: At 5:30pm, we will come together at1500 First ST NW for a glass of wine and some delicious appetizers and finger snacks.
The suggested donation for the event is $10 per person. This is a contribution to the Bates Area Civic Association, which is a non-profit organization under DC Tax Regulations and IRS regulations. Please make your check payable to BACA.
