The Annual Mission Hills Garden Walk will take place on Saturday, May 7th. We need docents to greet visitors in the homeowners' gardens. You do not have to be a garden club member to volunteer, so ask a friend to do a shift with you and in return you will both receive a free ticket for the walk.

There are two ways to sign up:

1) go to our website:

2) email Barbara Kocmur at
