Many years ago country singer Lynn Anderson had a huge hit with “I Never Promised You a Rose Garden.” Well, poor Lynn….all she had to do was go to Mountains Community Hospital in Lake Arrowhead and stroll through their magnificent rose garden, even if she didn’t promise anyone a “rose garden.” She was probably right….she didn’t promise it but boy would she love the magnificent roses in the quiet, shady garden that sits above Lake Arrowhead where you can stand in the garden and look at the boats whizzing by on the beautiful blue lake below.
The hospital’s auxiliary’s annual Le Grand Picnic is right around the corner, on Sunday, July 26 from 2 to 5 p.m. in the hospital’s beautiful, shady garden. One of the great part about this fundraiser is that the delicious food is provided by local restaurants. To add to the festivities is that there are three auctions: a silent auction, live auction and a reverse auction so guests are bound to find something that they can’t resist.
I believe tickets for this huge fundraiser are still available. The cost is $80 per person and guests may reserve a table (or two or three) so they can sit with their friends and/or family (or both). To reserve a table contact Susie Stuart at the hospital by calling (909) 436-3210. This event is always delightful and it raises a lot of money for the local hospital that through the years has provided so much help to so many permanent and part-time residents as well as visitors.
You can leave your tuxedos and elegant dresses at home because the “dress” is “mountain casual.”
