Take a glorious summer stroll through six lovely St. Charles gardens from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 21.
Sponsored by the Pottawatomie Garden Club of St. Charles, the gardens, all located on the east side of town, vary from a quaint cottage garden to an estate garden nestled in the woods.
Proceeds from the garden walk go to support the club's scholarship fund as well as other civic activities, including planting the flower boxes over the bridges in town.
