Join Janesville Dollars for Scholars members as they embark on a bus ride through the countryside.

They will meet on Sunday, June 13, at the Janesville Riviera-Roose Community Center in Janesville at 2 p.m. and return there by 5 p.m.

The afternoon includes beverages and dessert. A free-will donation will be taken up at the end of our day.

The money will all be used for the Janesville Home and Garden Tour scholarship.

The first stop on the Tour will be at the home of Mike and Lorraine Rosteck. Their creativity is evident everywhere on the former Camp Wahpahton grounds. Nostalgic longings come to the surface when strolling around the former dining hall turned home.

From vegetables to roses in the south sun, to brick walkways and patios, to shaded beds under the pines, there is something for everyone to enjoy at the Rosteck’s paradise. The wind in the trees around their home whispers, “Come, relax here in our woods.”

The next stop will be at Paul and Nancy Fratzke’s northwest of Janesville. These high energy people always have something new. Guests will be in awe of their majestic rock gardens, woodland environment and quaint garden shed.

Another stop will be the flowerbeds of Dave and Linda Herold on Waverly Road. They have created a beautiful palate of color as you wander in their backyard. After traversing the winding paths, participants of the tour will sneak behind their lush vegetable garden, and through the trees. There they will find the home of Marv and Sue Rindels. Their goldfish pond hidden in the pines is a refreshing oasis, with bright flowers along the house.

On top of a great ride to the lovely gardens, is the privilege for you to donate to the Janesville Chapter of Dollars for Scholars.

With questions, call Judy Fisher at 987-2966, or the Janesville School, 987-2581.
