Thanksgiving Point Activity

June 6, 2020

we are planning a visit to the Ashton Gardens at Thanksgiving Point. We will be visiting two gardens. The first will be the Light of the World garden which holds a number of Biblical statues. This will be a hands-on tour so that you can look at all of the statues by touch. We are hoping to have sculptor Angela Johnson there to talk about her work.
The second garden is a fragrance garden and would be of interest to people who like garden fragrances.
We are working to get golf carts to give people rides to the gardens, and we will have volunteers to help anyone who needs guidance to the various displays. And, if plans work out, we may also have a picnic lunch.
The cost should be around $15 per person.
What we are needing from you is a show of interest so that we will be able to know how many golf carts and how many volunteers would be needed. So please call and let us know if you think you would come. Leave your name, phone number, and if you will be coming with a group of people, how many people are coming in your group.
Call Monica Youngdell 801-364-2311 or Tina Terry at 801-245-9264.
