After the extremely long and cold winter we experienced, are you not tired of sitting at home wishing there was something you could do that would compel you to get started on your yard and garden?

Here at your Chamber, we are excited to tell you about an event we have been planning for almost two years, and we believe that if you attend, you are certain to be motivated to get busy in your own sanctuary.

What could we possibly do to pique your interest you ask?

On Saturday, May 31, your Newberry County Chamber of Commerce will present the Newberry County Garden and Art Tour.

Liz MacDonald has worked tirelessly with local home owners, and this year’s presentations promise to enlighten and encourage every visitor with ideas of their very own. A total of four homes as well as Carter and Holmes Orchids and Newberry’s Wells Japanese Garden will be on display.

Not only will you be exposed to gorgeous yards, each private garden stop will feature a local artist displaying and selling their creations.

For instance, you will get to meet Eric Moore, a very talented sculptor with an eye for detail whose work is absolutely amazing. Or, how about water color artist Marlene Youngblood, a name you will always remember when you encounter her beautiful renderings.

These are just a sample of the artists Liz has lined up just for your enjoyment. By the way, each artist will be offering their presentations for sale.

Liz has also worked with several businesses in Newberry County who have generously donated items for a drawing to be held among the ticket holders. But that is not all; several downtown Newberry restaurants are offering a ten percent discount for those opting to take this adventure. Believe me, this is one afternoon you will not want to miss.

For additional information and to reserve your tickets, simply call either Liz, Michelle, or myself at (803) 276-4274 or stop by the Chamber, located in Community Hall downtown Newberry. You can also obtain tickets at the Newberry Opera House by visiting or calling (803) 276-6264.

So plan to take the afternoon off, bring your best friend(s) and stroll through these beautiful gardens. In the end, you will be glad you did!
