Montesian Gardens Updates
September 3, 2020
Have you strolled through the Montesian Gardens this summer? A number of improvements have been made.
Greenwoods Bank did a complete makeover of their plot beside the brick walkway. The gazebo was power washed and stained. Permanent brick planters were built at the gazebo entrance from Harold Babler memorial funds, with the Eunice Witt family donating the lovely plantings. Pavers were put down and the picnic tables and benches were moved to more "user friendly" locations by John Beckwith and Todd and Leslie Brugger.
Our finances are limited; Community Club pledged $500.00 toward the gazebo painting but any donations from the public are welcome. Volunteers spend many hours planting, weeding and watering and many of them are from outside the village. Thanks to all who did a great job again this year, the Gardens have never looked nicer.
There are always plots available for someone to care for them. Contact Chairman John Beckwith at (608) 214-0294, Karen Ballin, Secretary, or Karen Brugger, Treasurer at (608) 938-3585.
