Garden Party

Storrowton will host a Garden Party to honor the history and growth of Aunt Helen’s Herb Garden, a gift to Helen Storrow and the Village from the Girl Scouts in 1935. The all-ages event will take place on June 20, 2019 from 7pm to 8:30pm.

Visitors can enjoy light fare catered by Storrowton Tavern. Guests have two options for admission: $5 or donate a plant from the garden wish list.
