I want to pass on this email flier from Garden House about their annual summer festival in the Pear Gardens next door from our meeting space. It sounds like a great way to spend a summer afternoon! Dan DeMatteis,

Beacon Arts will be exhibiting the "Blue Skies Trails" Murals which illustrate airplane noise in our neighborhood.
Talk to garden experts like the Master Gardeners and learn more about local community groups such as Friends of Lewis Park and your local Garden Club chapter.
We are still looking for volunteers to help out. We will be having one last planning meeting on Tuesday, August 14th, 7pm at my house. Email me for directions to the meeting or if you would just like to volunteer.
Show off your baking/cooking skills with pear dishes for the event. The pears are falling now and we can use some chefs!
