WILTON — The Tyngtown Club of Wilton sponsored a tour of area gardens on July 18, with proceeds to benefit the Wilton Free Public Library. Members report the club has donated more than $1,500 to the library through the event. The tour was successful, and a large number of guests attended despite the rainy weather.

Garden hostesses were Nancy Stowell, Zetta Wojcik, Joan Haeger, Nancy Cureton, Sarah Chamberlain, Susan Withrow, Lori Lewis and Tom Whalen and Susan Atwood, owners of the Wilson Lake Inn. The Planning Committee, chaired by Mary Ryan, included Sandy Warren, Cook Leonards, Lori Lewis and Tricia Flint.

Gwyn Sewall won the raffle for a one-night stay at the Wilson Lake Inn. Pat Eudy won the drawing for the birdhouse donated by John Cureton, and Maria Wells won the I Spy contest, receiving a basket containing a variety of gardening supplies donated by John Black of Rocky Hill Landscaping and Carol Chase of Bass Hill Gardens and Gifts. Chase also donated 10 percent of her sales on the tour day to the library.

The Tyngtown Club is a community service organization, now in its 106th year. The club’s first major project was fundraising to help establish a public library in Wilton, and it has contributed to the Wilton Free Public Library, located in the Goodspeed Memorial Library Building, for each of the last 104 years.
