Ford’s Colony Garden Club is hosting its Hidden Treasures Garden Tour this Saturday, May 14. Proceeds from the tour (after expenses) fund scholarships to Nature Camp for local youth.
The advanced-ticket price to visit all eight gardens is $8—that’s a mere $1 a garden. You will be treating yourself to a fun-filled spring day! It is a great way to pick up some gardening pointers and get ideas.
For advanced-price tickets, write a check to Ford’s Colony Garden Club for $8 per ticket. Note on the check that it is for Garden Tour Tickets and drop it off at John Pott guardhouse. On Saturday, pick up your pre-paid ticket, a tour map and descriptions of each featured garden between 9am-2pm at Swim & Tennis Club.
Advanced-sale tickets may also be purchased at Wednesday’s Garden Club meeting between 9 and 11am.
Day of tour ticket purchases at Swim & Tennis Club are $10 per ticket.
Please note: Saturday’s ticket purchase and pick-up times have been extended to 9am-2 pm.
The Garden Club also has raffle tickets ($3 each or 2/$5) for five themed garden baskets filled to overflowing with a delightful array of garden-related accessories and surprises.
1. Williamsburg Blue & White
2. Mother & Daughter in the Garden
3. Romantic Wine in the Garden
4. Red Cardinal Basket
5. Gardening for the Birds
Raffle basket tickets are on sale Saturday at Swim & Tennis Club or at 117 Killington, the third home on the tour where the baskets will be on display. You can specify your basket preference. The drawing will be held Saturday, and you do not need to be present to win.
We hope you can join us for this fun event and support the Nature Camp scholarships.
Questions should be directed to Charlene Zolad at 259-2125 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hello and thank you for visiting my blog all about Ford's Colony!
Since 2007 I have been THE TOP OVERALL SALES AGENT with the highest gross sales of all Liz Moore agents in Williamsburg. In fact, I annually lead ALL local agents in total closed sales.
As your full-service Realtor for the Williamsburg, James City County and Greater Williamsburg areas, I will provide you with superior service at all times. I've lived in Williamsburg nearly 30 years, giving me a wealth of "local knowledge" of the entire region, so I can provide clients with the best possible real estate experience.
If you are selling a home, my expertise and proven marketing programs will give you the exposure and edge you need to sell your home quickly for top dollar. I have a comprehensive marketing plan to ensure your home stands out:
As an Accredited Staging Professional, I am well-versed in staging homes and preparing them for market. I provide all necessary furnishings and home accessories FREE OF CHARGE!
After staging, I work with a professional photographer to capture your home's best features in still photos and 3D virtual tours.
Your home will be listed in both the Williamsburg MLS as well as the Newport News/Hampton MLS (REIN). This ensures that your home is available through sites like Realtor.com, Zillow.com and Trulia.com. Your home will also appear on my website PremierWilliamsburgRealEstate.com as a Featured Home.
Your home will also have representation through print advertising in The Daily Press, The Virginia Gazette, direct marketing and other outlets.
If you are buying, I look forward to helping you find the home of your dreams by taking time to listen to your needs and desires. I am familiar with all of the neighborhoods in the James City County, Williamsburg, Toano, York County, Lanexa and Stonehouse areas. I can help folks new to this area become acquainted with all that it has to offer and gain confidence and comfort during their move.
A little about me: I am a 1988 graduate of The University of Texas at Austin with a degree in Economics. Hook 'em Horns! I have earned the "Accredited Staging Professional" credential to help home sellers in staging their homes to sell quicker and usually for more money. I also have the SFR - Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource Specialist designation. I help any client who is struggling with a mortgage to learn options to avoid foreclosure and also help any clients who are in a short sale situation.
I love Williamsburg! It is an excellent place to live, and I would love to share my enthusiasm for its many neighborhoods and attributes with you. Please let me help you with your next move. -- Deelyn
