Garden party benefits Sackets Harbor auxiliary


SACKETS HARBOR — The second annual “Garden Party” hosted by the Sackets Harbor Firemens Ladies Auxiliary is July 28 with five locations in and around the village.

The Saturday event, from 9 a.m. to noon, starts at the gazebo on West Main Street. There also will be refreshments and raffles.

The stops:

The Hanzlian (Harbor) Gardens, 106 and 108 West Main St.

The gardens are dedicated to the Tin Pan Galley restaurant, where they provide fresh herbs for entrees, appetizers, soups and garnishes. The garden is maintained by Tin Pan Galley owner Andy Hanzlian. The grounds, with brick paths, statuary and urns, are open to the public during the same hours as the restaurant.

The Hoagland Garden, 206 General Smith Drive.

Beverly Hoagland said the garden was started 37 years ago in a backyard that was previously occupied by tall grass, old car parts and mattress springs. She said as years went by, her small gardens came together to form one big garden. Her favorite flowers and shrubs are near her back porch so she can sit and enjoy them.

The Britton Garden, 210 General Smith Drive.

Nadine C. Britton said she and her husband, Jeffrey M., began their garden “from the ground up.” After clearing out room for one bed and planting flowers, they continued to build their garden each year. A vegetable garden now blends with surrounding flowers. The Brittons’ two young daughters have now joined the family’s gardening mission.

The Constance Garden, 107 Hounsfield Street.

This location is the only repeat of last year’s tour. Tour organizers noted some things have changed and it’s worth another look, or a first look, if last year’s tour was missed.

The Bendix Garden, 109 Hounsfield Street.

Karen Bendix said that when she moved to the property in 2005, there were no flowers. She was inspired by village residents Kenneth A. and Patricia M. Schwarz, who were instrumental in helping the community win a nationwide beautification competition sponsored by America in Bloom.
