The Beautification Committee's third annual Tour des Fleurs fundraiser was a resounding success! The public voted for their favorite gardens, and the winners were announced at the Festival of the Vine. Funds raised at the contest will allow the all-volunteer group to continue its mission of beautifying downtown Geneva.
