* Willow Weekend - Saturday, June 5, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. the Prairie Pedlar will be hosting a Willow Weekend where crafting with twigs will bend all the rules. Four on-going workshops will take place throughout the day for those who want a "make-it-and-take-it" willow project. Craft your own twig trellis, fairy furniture, a bentwood planter, or a twig obelisk. Fees will apply to each project. Lunch will be available. The Prairie Pedlar is six miles north of Odebolt on M-43, then 3/4 mile west on 270th Street.
* Garden Tour - All gardeners are welcome to the first annual Garden Tour on Saturday, June 12, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in northern BV County.
Enjoy a leisurely stroll through fifteen of the most unusual floral displays in the area. Twelve of these gardens are located in Sioux Rapids, three can be seen in Linn Grove. Your drive to each garden in the tour will let you take as much time as you wish to gain some valuable ideas for your own flower bed.
Interested in landscaping? Check out the many home owners who have strived to make their yards one of beauty and enjoyment. Rocks, ponds, unique flowers and arboretum are just a few of the things you will see on the tour.
Tickets are $10 each and are on sale at City Hall in Sioux Rapids, the First State Bank in Sioux Rapids or call 712-283-2045 for more information.
