Thursday, June 15th
RSVP by June 13th

Join us on Thursday, June 15th in Shermans Dale for a visit to one of our newest local treasures, The Bower. The Bower is a 36 acre native plant preserve with meadow, grasslands and woodland. This beautiful space boasts over 200 varieties of native plants, shrubs, trees and incorporates commissioned works of art throughout. The gardens were created by the couple who live on the property as a way to share the beauty of nature and art with the local community at no charge.


While admission is free, a registration is required and can accommodate a party of up to 15, due to limited space. The registration is private and no one else will be touring the grounds during the time slot. The Bower is about a 30 minute drive from Chisuk Emuna. Start time to be at The Bower is 1:00 pm. Please arrive just a few minutes early to start on time. Carpooling is encouraged, however transportation is on your own. Please RSVP no later than June 8th so I can advise how many will be coming. Text, call or email Jennifer Baker for more information and to reserve your spot: Cell: 802-473-8037, email:

This Week, June 8-17
