Secret Gardens of Strasburg Tour

The bi-annual Secret Gardens of Strasburg tour is one of our biggest fund raisers. However, we will need gardens to put on display, so, if you want to show-off your “pride and joy” and help the society, volunteer your garden--we need 8 to 10 to have a really special offering. In addition, for all those folks who have more than enough perennials and want to get rid of their excess, please consider giving those to the SHS for sale or as volunteers gifts during the tour. The Society needs potted and labeled plants, and will not be able to offer assistance in digging and potting.

As an additional feature of the tour, SHS will be offering lunch for sale to touring guests and the public in general.

Your continued support is greatly appreciated.

Volunteer Work Day

The Society is fortunate to own three historic buildings on S. Decatur St., the c.1794 John Shroy House, the c.1878 Samuel Shroy House, and the c.1807 Methodist Meeting House. With ownership comes responsibility and, unfortunately, we haven’t had the resources in recent years to properly maintain these buildings. We are calling upon those of you who are able to do so to join us in rolling up our sleeves and applying some good old-fashioned elbow grease to these projects. Bring your energy! Bring your enthusiasm!
