Are you Interested in Working on the House & Garden Tour?
It's time to get started working on the Low Garden Club's House & Garden Tour and the Club needs someone to take charge!
While there are a lot of moving elements to this event, there are also a lot of team members that can lighten the load.

Maybe you have a buddy in the club that you would enjoy co-chairing this event with? Co-chairs are a great way to divvy up tasks and they make the work even more fun!
There are already people willing to take charge of the, public relations and printing and even help with organizing the volunteers!
