Harrogate’s Fourth Annual Garden Party was held Friday morning, July 11, 2014. The weather was bright, sunny, and breezy…. just perfect and we had a great turnout. Even the gang in Harrogate’s Doggie Park right next door participated in the festivities!
Bruce S., our Resident Building and Grounds Committee Chairperson, opened the party with his wonderful sense of humor we have all come to expect and appreciate; followed by remarks from the “Mayor of Harrogate”, Executive Director, Don Johansen. Certificates were presented to Helen G., Anne H., and Louise S. for the best gardens and Gardener of the Year. Other fun prizes were awarded to Helen W., Louise Z. and Millie B. for the most decorative costumes and accessories.
Prize tickets were drawn for lucky members of the crowd who were given prizes of flower bouquets, baskets of fresh fruit and veggies, and bottles of wine.
Pat O. and Evelyn A. serenaded everyone with “What a Wonderful World” and ended the program by leading the group, who accompanied the song with Kazoos, in “You Are My Sunshine.”
The Food Services Department provided lemonade and iced tea, along with delicious fresh pastries and fruit for all to enjoy.
