Our New Fence Has Been Funded!
Tuesday, April 1st, 2014 the Santa Rosa City Council accepted the bid and finalized the funding to replace our “Pathetic Pickets.” The contractor has the go-ahead now, and we hope to have the New Fence before the Tour Season is over.
Luther Burbank Home & Gardens Association presented Mayor Bartley with a $51,000 check representing several years of fundraising, including the $5/$20 Daisy Dollars sold in the Gift Shop, the Dining with Daisies Gala last summer, and nine donors who sponsored $1000 fence sections. The balance of the cost is coming mostly from a joint City/LBHGA Capital Improvement fund with the remainder coming from City funds.
We are very excited to see this project underway! We want to thank everyone who has had a part in this: our generous Donors, our Friends, our tireless Volunteers, and our dedicated Board Members as well as City Staff and the Santa Rosa City Council. This is a fine example of community coming together to preserve a treasured landmark.
