A Grand Day, April 21 for Garden Week in Port Royal
The spring weather couldn't have been better after a storm the previous night cleared out lingering humidity. Garden Week in Port Royal and Caroline featured two homes in the village, open from 10am to 5pm:
1. Riverview, 923 Water Street.
2. Town Field. 207 Frederick Street This property will also have a horticulture exhibit from 11am to noon.
St. Peter's through the help of the Royal Caterers (and hired help) provided box lunches for 175+ at Fall Hall. We gave tours of the church and also advertised our current ministries. During the tours we made $250 for a future tablet restoration and collected some funds for the Community Give on May 5
A photo gallery provided by Catherine and Barbara is here. Thanks to the many in the congregation who helped make it a success!
In addition the tour featured three other wonderful Caroline properties on the tour:
3. Moss Neck Manor 18253 Moss Neck Manor Road
4. Prospect Hill - 2426 Prospect Hill Lane
5. Rose Hill 23348 Tidewater Trail, Port Royal
