History Blooms at Wartinger Park
June 8, 2013
New Special Event At Wartinger Park
Mark your calendars now for Saturday, June 8, 2013, and plan to attend the History Blooms at Wartinger Park event planned for that day. We’re arranging for an interesting collection of activities to show off the park in late spring with emphasis on how the pioneers related with the land. We’re hoping for a sunny day with the old-fashioned rose bushes and flower beds in full bloom. This event will be jointly sponsored by the Beavercreek Historical Society, the Master Gardeners and the Flower Trail Garden Club—lots of folks who share a love for that pretty little park tucked into the center of our city.
The event will be free, with hours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., offering:
• Docent-guided tours of the historic homes decorated for spring, the flower and herb gardens, and the historical barn
• Displays of antique farm equipment
• Flower Show provided by Flower Trail Garden Club featuring three classes of floral arrangements
• Individual or group photography (available for purchase) in 1800s period costumes by Trudy Leis of Masters Peace Photography
• Food for purchase from Harvest Mobile Cuisine Food Truck, operated by Beavercreek native and Culinary Institute of America graduate chef
Patrick Sartin, who specializes in preparing foods using local ingredients
If you would be willing to take a two-hour shift to act as a docent in one of the log homes, please call either Wendy Kirchoff (429-1520) or Jill Kincer (429-0291), who are co-chairs representing the BHS for this event. Also co-chairing History Blooms at Wartinger Park are Traudl Schrick representing the Flower Trail Garden Club and Cathy Plum from the Greene County Master Gardeners.
