History of Martin Perry House and honoring Powell Area Garden Club

Carole Wilhelm assisted by Linda Miller, both Powell residents and volunteers with Powell Liberty Historical Society and Powell Area Garden Club, presented the history of the Martin - Perry House and gardens, headquarters of the Historical Society. Honored guests were garden club members and friends of Jo Cornish-Gerwig from Farmer's Insurance who were recognized for their commitment to work in the gardens in Jo's memory. Jo was a key member of the historical society and the garden club. Tours of the house and garden followed and ice cream was enjoyed by all.

Scouts Cleanup the Grounds and Gardens

On July 6, 2019 the Laser Turkey Patrol of troop 428 assisted the Powell Area Garden Club in preparing the Martin Perry House Gardens for the House and Garden tour held on July 8. The scouts and adult leaders were an enormous help completing a list of a dozen jobs. A great community service project for them and a much appreciated benefit to us.
