Back Alley Garden Tour & Tea returns
The Shepherdstown Community Club will sponsor its 18th Back Alley Garden Tour & Tea on Saturday and Sunday, May 16 and 17, featuring a self guided walking tour of more than a dozen private gardens that are rarely open to the public and an elegant afternoon tea.
Garden Tour hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday May 16 and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday May 17. (rain or shine) The teas are offered from 12 noon to 4 p.m. each day at the War Memorial Building (handicap accessible on German & King streets).
Admission to both the Tour and Tea for the weekend is $20 per person through May 13, and $25 after that. The admission ticket is good for unlimited entry to the gardens both days but can be used for only one tea, either Saturday or Sunday.
Advance sale tickets are available in Shepherdstown at the Sweet Shop & Four Seasons Books and Yarnability. During the May 16-17 weekend, tickets will also be available at the War Memorial Building. For more details visit the club’s web site www.shepherdstowncc.org.
