Fred Fraser asked if the women wanted a tour doing "women things" without the men complaining. "YES" was the women's answer. Several suggestions were made such as a nursery tour, antique tour, tea, and teaching wives to drive. Wanda volunteered to check our VanWingerden Greenhouses to see if they would let us tour them and tea at a place in Sunnyside. More later if this pans out.
Wanda told of the Sawyer Mansion in Sawyer, Washington, tour that was this past weekend. Very interesting tour.
