Kim and Mac Adler, GardenWalk 2017 Raffle winners

Kim and Mac Adler were last summer's (2017) Raffle winners! The Adlers and their two children just moved into their new home in Solon after renting for a time. They were very excited to receive the wheelbarrow and its contents as they had no gardening tools before they won the raffle.
