    Aug 18, 2016

                The Sweet Arrow Reserve, the newest and largest park in the Bellbrook-Sugarcreek Parks District, is adjacent to the Cornerstone Development. The Little Sugar Creek happens to run through the Sweet Arrow Reserve at the bottom of a major flood plain. OSU Extension Greene County Master Gardeners are putting their concern into action in an attempt to stem the significant erosion caused by the recent increase in real estate development.

When local hybridizers Karen Whiteside and Ed Mongold approached the MGs about sponsoring and organizing a daylily show, they quickly approved the idea and began working. The fair board liked the idea and approved the show. Plans included a class for the public on how to properly prepare a daylily for a show.
