Christi says: “My inspiration to organize this garden tour is my son, PFC Cole William Larsen, who was killed Nov. 13, 2004, while serving his country in Iraq. This tour is to honor the memory of my son along with all of our brave fallen and wounded military who have sacrificed life and limb for our country.”

Donations are gratefully accepted throughout the year.
