Garden, music tour a success
DEERFIELD VALLEY - The Deerfield Valley Rotary Club held its second annual Garden and Live Music event on Friday, July 17, raising roughly $10,000 to help the local community. Ticketholders saw the gardens of six area homeowners, while listening to live musicians who donated their time and treasures. Musicians included Jill Sachs, Logan Boyd, Kevin Parry, Paul Fisher, Sky Alan, Peter Miles, Bongobilly (Bill Maher), Trumpet Andy (Andrew Pesner), Chris Mays, Alex Hutchinson, Jaqueline DeVoe, and Logan Haley.
One homeowner offered wine tastings from their vineyard and another surprised guests with a glass of bubbly or wine while they strolled around the property. Ann Coleman donated her print for the raffle - which was won by Joan Emerson - adding to funds raised, and showcased her art in her gardens during the tour.
