On Thursday, January 18, the Monroe Garden Study League hosted their Tulips and Toddies fundraising event at the home of Sue and Walter Sartor. Guests were serenaded by a jazz saxaphonist on the second floor balcony as they entered the party. Beautiful displays of tulips and French 75 champagne toddies met them in the foyer. Passed hors d’oeuvre trays were carried by beautiful girls with flowers adoring their heads. A garden market was available for guests to purchase books, vases, soaps, honey, note cards, bulbs and more, with all proceeds benefiting the MGSL’s community projects. Past community projects include signage at Forsythe Park, recycle bins for Neville High School and Bendel Ballpark, and several projects in downtown Monroe. The group is currently planning a variety of projects that include seeding the Hwy 165 corridor with native wildflowers.
