Annual Water garden Tour
We are in the throes of planning this year’s tour. So far we have nine gardens with one or two more to be confirmed. The tour will be on July 8th and the pre tour, to which you are all invited, will be on June 24th. As you may remember you will each have your own name sign ( you can see these signs in the pictures below)at the site and you are welcome to exhibit 2-3pieces of your artwork if they are not too big :-)!! (We do remember that we are featuring the garden and the water feature so it would be best if your display is discreet.) You are welcome to sell these if you wish. If you have note cards you would like to display or very small prints they may also be for sale. We just ask that you be responsible for your own sales. The annual Water Garden tour helps FTLOA provide the assistance to the youth In the Dodoma Region of Tanzania. Last year we were fundraising for the Dodoma Technical Institute, and believe it or not, we actually finished phase one of that project and the students started enrolment in January!!! We were thrilled to say the least. This year we are assisting one of our previous projects, the School at Ipagala. They are needing a boundary fence built around the school property to keep the children safe and to enable the teachers to keep a watchful eye during recess etc. I hope you will be able to join us this year. If you Know anyone else that might like to join us, please let me know. Looking forward to hearing from you Margaret ( On behalf of FTLOA water garden tour committee) firstname.lastname@example.org
