Gordon Gee home selected for 2009 Bexley House and Garden Tour
The Bexley home of Gordon Gee, President of The Ohio State University, is the first home selected to be on the 2009 Bexley House and Garden Tour, according to Kim Rogers, chair of the House and Garden Committee for Bexley Women's Club.
With the theme of "Renovate, Restore, Renew!", the Bexley House and Garden Tour will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. June 14.
"We are so grateful for the support of President Gee," Rogers said. "The House and Garden Tour is the main fund-raiser for the Bexley Women's Club scholarship fund so it is very appropriate for this home to be on our tour. The OSU president's home also carries through our renovation theme since the house has recently undergone considerable remodeling."
On June 13, an invitation-only Gala featuring expanded tours of the House and Garden homes with cocktails special foods will be held. For more information about the tour and gala and ticket information, or to volunteer for the tour, contact Bexley Women's Club through its Web site www.bexleywomen.org.
