Keep Stephenville Beautiful is gearing up for its third annual Garden Tour. The tour is an opportunity to enjoy six beautiful backyard oases scattered across the community. And there's bound to be no small amount of inspiration to gain from those garden visits.

The self-guided tour will begin at 9 a.m. and end at 1 p.m on Saturday, June 1. Tickets are $10 and all proceeds go toward funding the many projects KSB undertakes to improve the aesthetic appeal of the city and to educate the community on environmental issues.

"The passion of the board of directors is to make Stephenville the best it can be and to improve the quality of life for its citizens," KSB Secretary Janet Whitley said. "Every penny we get, whether it is from the tour or from people joining, goes right back into the community in terms of beautification projects."

Tickets can be purchased at the Chamber of Commerce, Scott's Flowers on the Square, Greenmaker Nursery and from the KSB board members who are listed on its website at
