I work with the Lewiston Garden Club in presenting the Lewiston GardenFest and am responsible for the graphics, ads and website. The hard-working woman of the Lewiston Garden Club organize and put on this village event each year. It is attended by thousands, yet parking is easy to find and the festival is easily walkable.

Oh, and I advertise the festival in Niagara Falls from my front yard garden.
