Popular Home and Garden Tour returns June 27 It’s been a long time Hessenland celebrated 25 years in business Sunday with an open house and food sampling. Left, owner Ernst Ihrig welcomes an old friend, Dr. Charles Wallace of Bayfield, to the event. “My parents put a lot of sweat equity in this business to get to where we are today,” Ernst’s son Frank says. “We have big shoes to fill in a family business, so we have to be mindful of the history.

The Grand Bend Horticultural Society hopes this year’s Festival of Homes, Gardens and Arts sells out like last year’s event did. On board for the June 27 event are nine homes and gardens, 23 artists and 2 nurseries. Passports for the tour are $15, with locations disclosed that day. The passport includes treats such as homemade cookies and lemonade, and samples from local restaurants, Parmalat Cheese in London, and Brantford’s The Cider Keg. M&M Meat Shops is a major sponsor, and is donating proceeds from a lunch barbecue to the event. Entertainment will be provided by UWO’s New Horizon Band, with Paul Seagrave performing at the Putherbough home in St. Joseph during the afternoon. To reserve your passport, call 519236-7884.
