2019 Home and Garden Tour Recap

On behalf of everyone in Palmer Woods, we would like to thank you for attending our 2019 Home & Garden Tour, which was held on July 13th & 14th of this year. From start to finish, the weather cooperated beautifully (though perhaps a bit warm at times!) to create a very special weekend for you, our cherished friends and guests. We hope that you were able to enjoy all of the beautiful homes and gardens that were presented on this year’s Tour, all of which contribute to the diversity and grandeur of our storied neighborhood.

We are proud to say that over the course of two days, we were able to welcome several hundreds of guests into our neighborhood to enjoy the many beautiful homes and gardens on the Tour, selling out both days! Thanks to your support, we were able to raise a significant amount of funds for neighborhood beautification and improvement projects, as well as for charitable contributions to benefit several Detroit-based charities. Most importantly, your participation in our Tour has helped to solidify Palmer Woods as one of the premiere neighborhoods in Metro Detroit. Without your enthusiastic attendance and your willingness to spend the weekend with us, this level of success would not have been possible.
