Garden tour draws 150

New and repeat patrons buzzed like bees to a flower patch Saturday for Marion City Library’s garden tour.

Library director Janet Marler said 150 people attended the seventh year of the event.

“The majority of the group was from out-of-town,” she said. “It was a good turnout. People seemed to have a good time.”

Vistors traveled from as far away as Benton, Wichita, El Dorado, and Sedgwick, and others came from as close as Hillsboro.

“There were some new faces, but most people had attended before,” Marler said. “There is a couple from Sedgwick who never miss it.”

Marler said people made positive comments about the variety of flowers, well-kept lawns, landscaping ideas, and views at each stop on the tour.

“The women were enamored with all of it,” she said. “The men seemed to like a red 1947 Jeep that Vickie Kraus had near a fire pit by the creek behind her house.”
