Fall Banquet certain to please!

If you've been following my blog and Facebook page, you already know about an exciting event coming up.

It's the "Fall Banquet: An Evening with Jack Nisbet" and will be hosted by the Master Gardener Foundation of Spokane County. It will take place on Thurs., Oct. 8 and is open to the public.

Jack Nisbet is an engaging writer and speaker. Author of several books, the title of his talk is "Some Exceedingly Interesting Things: The Many Gardens of David Douglas." Jack will also be signing his books at 4 p.m.

There will be a catered dinner, silent auction and door prizes. The no-host bar and silent auction begin at 4 p.m., followed by the dinner at 6 p.m. The event will be held at Lincoln Center, 1316 N. Lincoln St., Spokane.

Tickets for the event cost $35. Note that the deadline for purchasing them is this Fri., Oct. 2! For more information and to purchase, go to the Master Gardener of Spokane County website.

You won't want to miss this opportunity for a lovely evening, hearing Jack Nisbet speak and enjoying a delicious dinner. I've already been assured one of the dessert choices will contain chocolate, by the way!

This event is one of three main fundraisers for the Spokane County Master Gardener program.

Hope to see you there. It'll be a great evening and an opportunity you won't want to miss!
